102 Years of "Corn Flower"

 W.J. Hughes “Corn Flower” Celebrates its 102th Anniversary in 2016

William J. “Jack” Hughes started his business selling and distributing glassware in 1914.  He cut each piece himself with a floral design that he had created.  The process was accomplished in five steps which, when repeated, allowed the floral pattern to be consistent and matching on different pieces.  The flowers were large and the lush design included a profusion of leaves and joined stems.  It was a successful formula relying on Jack Hughes’ hard work ethic.
