Dutch Glass - (Glass) As German till the early seventeenth century when many Venetian glass-workers settled in Holland where the Italian styles were to be later influenced by German and English techniques. The great Dutch and Flemish contribution to glass-making was in the excellence of their engraved decoration; whether working with diamond point or wheel their work, at its best, has never been surpassed. Much of it was done on English-made glass; stipple-point engraving was notable in the latter half of the eighteenth century and, indeed, well into the nineteenth century.
