William Burchfield (1942-2012) originally set up Cape Cod Glass Works in 1976 in Massachusetts. He had first become interested in glass while working at the Pairpoint Glass Company in the early 1970s. The first signature cane in his paperweights bore the initials WBC. In 1990, the CCGW signature cane with a two digit date was introduced and in 1992 rose canes containing the initials wBc were added. The company made a wide range of quality, collectable weights - crowns, marbries, millefiori, scrambleds and crimp roses. The company was closed down in 2000 and William Burchfield moved to Tennessee.
