Catspaw Sheet Glass
For the first time, Kokomo Opalescent Glass is offering our amazing Catspaw glass online. Catspaw sheets are one of our oldest products, having been in production since 1888. Our first customer, Louis Comfort Tiffany, purchased tens of thousands of pounds of our Catspaw over the years for use by Tiffany studios; today it is commonly used for restorative work or to make a more authentic looking new item. These sheets are different from our standard sheet art glass in a number of ways.
Catspaw comes in two finishes; Smooth Catspaw and Granite Catspaw. It is produced on our Catspaw tables, where the glass is poured onto the table and then rolled with a single roller to thickness. The texture comes from the table and not from the roller. Because of the way it is manufactured, Catspaw is typically more difficult to cut than our regular glass.
Our Catspaw sheet sizes vary more, too. Full sheets are 24” wide by 36” long, but can be as wide as 26” and over 42” long. We sell this product only as a full sheet or a half sheet; full sheets are shipped in wooden crate via common carrier (semi truck) only, please call 765-457-8136 for pricing and shipping quotes. Our half sheets are sold online and shipped through FedEx.
