When you find someone you can thoroughly trust (Ryan), and who always seems to have the best and most interesting pieces of ABP glass (at CriticalGlass.com), well, you just keep coming back.
At last count, I’ve bought 15 top tier beauties from Ryan, and am completely delighted with each. My favorites? Perhaps a huge, signed ‘Salem’ footed fruit bowl by Sinclaire, and the most gorgeous pair of Dorflinger Hollow Diamond candlesticks ever.
I also appreciate the ever-changing inventory and wide range of choice in both price and and style, not to mention the interesting commentaries.
Thank you, Ryan.RLS – St. Petersburg, FL
Critical Glass is a website that all advanced and beginning collectors should peruse. Ryan Fleisher’s knowledge of American Brilliant Cut Glass, received from his grandparents, parents, and his own study, coupled with his photographic memory of patterns, makes him a leading judge of quality. His informative, developed website and his willingness to share his knowledge to identify a collector’s own pieces make purchasing from Ryan a delightful experience. I know him to be a man of integrity, and his rare pieces will continue to be a source for me.MAV—Memphis, Tennessee
I’ve reached that stage in life where I need to downsize which means I need to part with my glass collection. I consider myself to be very fortunate to know Ryan who has sold numerous pieces of glass for me. His knowledge of glass quality and ability to identify patterns are remarkable, his pricing is extremely fair to buyer and seller and it’s simply a pleasure to deal with him.CB, Winston-Salem
We have only been collecting cut glass for a little over three years. We have been doing business with Ryan and Critical Glass for almost all of these years. We find him to be above reproach and he has a wonderful selection of cut glass of superb quality in varied price ranges.
He is a wonderful source of information and of pattern identification. All of our 20 plus pieces purchased from him are great and we hope to do business with Ryan and Critical Glass for a long long time to come!
Any collector, both advanced and beginner, would find Ryan as a wonderful source from which to purchase cut glass.M&S – Dalton, Georgia
Scrutiny of Ryan’s cut glass items for sale certainly brings to mind the words, “superior”, “premium” , “rare” and of surprising quantity at reasonable cost. It is refreshing to know a young man with Ryan’s critical knowledge of quality cut glass will be there to carry on the enthusiasm and appreciation for collection and care-taking of the jewels of yesteryear. I look forward to the purchases I have earmarked. They will certainly be trophy pieces for my collection.
It has been a real pleasure dealing with Ryan Fleisher at Criticalglass.com. I find his prices appropriate for the fine quality pieces he offers, and his descriptions are always right on the mark. Whenever I have any questions, he answers them immediately and completely. I look forward to a long-term relationship with this source for outstanding American Brilliant Period cut glass.Clive Harding – Woodbridge, VA
