The Dyottville Glass Works
This website was developed because of my appreciation of old glass literally in my back yard. All of Dr T W Dyotts glass Factory's were located within a 30 mile radius of my current home. My Name is Stephen Atkinson I live in Sewell New Jersey and with the help of a great T W Dyott Historian and fellow collector of rare Dyott glass and family artifacts Gerard ( Jerry) Dauphinais of Connecticut, this website will make the casual and advanced collector of Dyott related material all the more familiar and appreciative of what exactly happened from 1803 to 1880.
The Dyottville Glass works saga began across the Delaware river in Glassboro New Jersey in 1781 by the Stanger Family which consisted of a Father and 5 sons who founded a 4 pot furnace here. Fast Forward twenty five years and the Stanger works were now owned and operated by David Wolf and Dr Dyott of Philadelphia. These works were now called the Olive Glass works. Dyott would sell the products in Philadelphia and David ran the daily operation of the Glass factory. Dyott was also part owner of the Gloucester Glass Works in Clementon New Jersey with Jonathan Haines and the Union Glass Works of Port Elizabeth New Jersey.
By 1817 Dyott added the newly rebuilt Kensington glass factory to his glass empire. By the year 1819 he purchased the Kensington Glass factory out right and sold his interests in the other New Jersey factory's. His departure from these glass factory's must have been a big deal financially for all of them because they would all eventually close in less then 5 years after his departure. The Kensington Glass factory was now firmly established again, and would become the largest in the country at that time.
Please check out all of the pages on this site as there is a lot of material to navigate.
Below are some of the rare flasks and bottles Jerry and I have accumulated between us. I would like to add more to the site and if you have a Dyott related piece of glass or paper artifact you would like presented on this site please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank You Stephen Atkinson
These bottles were made at the Olive Glass Works,the Gloucester Glass works, the Kensington Glass works and then later Dyottville Glass Works between 1808 and 1855.
