Paperweight production at the New England Glass Company (NEGC) in Boston, Massachusetts, postdated the classical years in Europe - with the main production period extending over roughly 30 years from the early 1850s to the 1880s. Initially American weights tended to imitate the French style. Later, NEGC developed numerous designs of its own - often with intricate faceting. No signed weights have been recorded but an 1852 date cane is seen in some weights. Silhouettes included running rabbits, bees, hearts and an eagle. The product range included both millefiori and lampwork. The firm closed down in 1888.
