Gunderson

by Harry Rinker (10/23/07).

Robert Gunderson purchased the Pairpoint Corporation, Boston, Massachusetts, in the late 1930s and operated it as the Gunderson Glass Works until his death in 1952. Operating as Gunderson-Pairpoint, the company continued for only five more years.

In the 1950s, the Gunderson Glass Company produced a wide range of reproduction glassware as well as its peachblow-type art glass shades from an opaque faint pink tint to a deep rose. Robert Bryden attempted a revival of the firm in 1970. He moved the manufacturing operations from the old Mount Washington plant in Boston back to New Bedford.
