The glass making process was much different than it is today. At the time, the principal product was cut glass. Work was done slowly by hand methods and years of practice were needed to develop the necessary skills. Following WWII, Libbey discontinued the production of handmade glassware and began to concentrate on the automatic high volume techniques that would help Libbey become America's most recognizable name in glassware.The world's first machine-made stemware was automatically produced on Libbey equipment and a short time later Libbey developed its heat-treated process for glassware used in hotels and restaurants.
