Kokomo Opalescent Glass is a manufacturer of colored glass for art and architecture with worldwide distribution and a strong commitment to research, education, and promoting sheet glass art.

Based in Kokomo, Indiana for 122 years, we are known worldwide for our hand mixed sheet glass art and colored glass.

New Beginnings

Opalescent Glass Works continued to be operated under the court receivership. In June 1891 the court started the process of selling the business. On August 28, 1891 three local businessmen Peter Hoss, William Blacklidge, and John Learner purchased Opalescent Glass Works for $5,310. These three partners were instrumental to KOG's early development, and their direct descendants have been closely involved in managing the company ever since, making the KOG a unique example of a successful, closely held, "tri-family" business enterprise.

Louis Tiffany continued to be one of the largest customers until the mid 1890's. In 1893 Louis Tiffany purchased over 10,000 pound of glass from Opalescent Glass Works.

On January 13, 1912 the name of Opalescent Glass Works was changed to Kokomo Opalescent Glass Company which remains operating at the same location in Kokomo, Indiana.

The Tiffany Years

Over the years KOG developed a reputation for product uniqueness, quality and customer satisfaction that was unsurpassed in the stained glass trade. Industry giants such as L.C. Tiffany, J&R Lamb, and LaFarge are among the prominent names that appear often on the company's early sales ledger.


We continue to be a source for restoration glass and will create custom mix batches for our commercial customers. We still have and mix many of the same "recipes" that originally made us a premier glass manufacturer and continue to add exciting new colors and textures to meet the demand of an ever growing consumer audience.

We are happy to provide customers outside of our locality with an opportunity to purchase Kokomo Opalescent Glass art pieces via our Web Store. We continue to change with the times but always remember our rich heritage in the glass industry. We are America's Oldest Art Glass Company!
