You are cordially invited to come and join in the fascination that is cut and engraved American glassware.

The American Cut Glass Association is a nonprofit, national organization devoted to the advancement of this unique American industrial art form.

Generated by an increased interest in the antique specialty, the American Cut Glass Association (ACGA) was formed in the summer of 1978 in Indianapolis, Indiana, with a group of 40 charter members. ACGA has grown in size to over 2300 persons that participate in the educational and social activities of American Cut Glass fellowship through the national organization and regional chapter activities. 

It has been considered by some that ACGA members are not collectors, but rather they are preservers of a superb American antique glass product. ACGA dealers are not merchants, rather they are intermediaries in the continual quest of our preservation efforts. Whatever attributed to be, ACGA members must certainly be known as splendid enthusiasts of beauty, brilliance, and brotherhood.
