Heat-Cast Restoration Window Glass: Through a special process, regular window glass is reheated up to its softening point. The sheet of glass then loses its surface flatness and begins to exhibit a slightly wavy characteristic reminiscent of blown glass. Also during this time, the sheet of glass begins to show mild surface imperfections that add a bit of a seedy look. The outcome is a modified glass that is a very good representation of old world restoration window glass.

Hollander Circa 1800 Window Glass™ is handmade exclusively by Hollander, one sheet at a time, in the USA. Circa 1800 captures the old world charms of mouth-blown restoration window glass at a fraction of the cost and can be used when size and safety requirements precludes the use of mouth blown glass . Circa 1800 has a light wavy non-directional surface quality, along with occasional pits creating just the right amount of distortion and making it the perfect choice for any historical restoration project.
