The Dorflinger Factory Museum is a regional industrial heritage museum celebrating the history and craftsmanship of the Dorflinger glass companies in Brooklyn, New York and White Mills, Pennsylvania. The Dorflinger companies produced fine lead crystal table ware for U.S. Presidents, governments, and wealthy individuals during the Gilded Age. Housed in the factory’s restored 1883 Cutting Shop and ca. 1888 Factory Office, the museum is home to a premier collection of Dorflinger glass. Exhibits explore the history of the company and its visionary leader, Christian Dorflinger, how this remarkable glass was made and decorated, and how it was used in society.
Through September 2, 2018, the Museum is presenting a special exhibit of eighteen contemporary glass sculptures by internationally acclaimed glass artist Christopher Ries.
