Still working on Harriton Carved Glass

February 23, 2008 at 11:37 pm 5 comments

We spent the last few days with Lynn Harriton. She brought an actual copy of the earliest catalog so I will be updating the photos soon. The old zeroxed images were so bad….

Also we found some new leads and images. We could not find an image on the web of the glass with fishes made famous in The Godfather…”Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes”… Looking for it was enough to give me nightmares of my own final season of The Sopranos.

This is a big project…looking for information and collecting images, and then boiling it down and putting it on a site that is worthy of the Harriton aesthetic.

If anyone has ideas, links, images of suggestions, they are certainly welcome.


Howard L . Chaney created this design for Harriton Carved Glass. It was to be at National Airport, but was not executed. The piece is gouache on board, 18.5 x 30 and done in 1940. It is a beauty isn’t it?

    This is off topic, I’m sorry, but I’m an old friend of Lynne’s and have lost touch with her. Wondering if you could pass my email along to her? And, yes, the work above is beautiful!

    I’ve attached link to images I’ve taken of the Harriton Carved Glass piece on the 300 Sixth Ave building in Pittsburgh. I’d love to know more about it…but details seem really sketchy and hard to find.
