Cut Glass Works



Established in 1893 by Thomas Shotton and George Noke, in a little plant at the corner of Concord Street and Hudson Avenue, Brooklyn New York with only six cutting frames. It was not long before the plant proved to be too small, and so the concern moved to Hope Street, Brooklyn, which quarters they afterwards outgrew in a comparatively short time. In 1904 they first moved to the immense factory building on Driggs Avenue, between North Ninth and North Tenth Streets. At the time of the move only one floor was used, but three years later a second floor was engaged, which was known as the "Shotton Annex." In 1913 accounts reffered to the Shotton Cut Glass Works as the largest in the country, if not the world having 350 frames. {2003}
