Silverbrook Art Glass WorksS (1943 - 1976)
Hand-blown glass art manufactured with centuries-old techniques by the Kreutz brothers of Riverhead

For the first time in over 30 years our entire Silverbrook Collection will be showcased in our museum! After fleeing their native Czechoslovakia in 1937 in fear of a Hitler invasion, the four Kreutz brothers came to the United States as fifth-generation glass-blowers, settling in Suffolk County and establishing their glassworks company on Flanders Road in Riverhead. Unlike most other glassware manufacturers using machines at the time, Joseph, Henry, Frank, and John Kreutz used the traditional centuries-old hand-blown glass techniques they had learned in their homeland to create extraordinary glass art pieces.

In our History in the Hall display cases - exhibit extended to May 22, 2021 by popular demand!
