Welcome to the Dorflinger Factory Museum

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 15, 2019, the Museum is presenting a special exhibit of paintings, prints, pastels, and collages by noted artist William Chickillo entitled “Baseball, Our Boys of Summer.” The exhibit celebrates the early history of baseball in northeast Pennsylvania and includes a full-size cut glass baseball bat made for White Mills baseball hero Eddie Murphy.
