Did You Know? - Etched Glass

Etched glass was developed in the mid-1800s. Acid-etched glass, also known as 'French Embossing' became popular for its ability to shield patrons in drinking establishments from view while letting in natural light. Victorian and Edwardian homes quickly adopted the look, and today, etched designs appear on windows, mirrors, and even glassware. As the chemicals needed to achieve this frosted effect have become less toxic, etching glass has turned into an ideal project for all "Do it Yourself-ers" looking to personalize their homes!
