Thomas Richard Mosser (Thomas Richard Mosser)

Thomas Richard Mosser

Glassmaker. As a teenager, he learned the glassmaking trade by working at the Cambridge Glass Company. When Cambridge Glass closed in 1954, he began pursuing his dream of opening up his own glass factory by purchasing glass moulds, equipment and saving up the needed capital. Five years later he co-founded Variety Glass which specialized in glassware for the pharmaceutical industry. In 1971 he started the Mosser Glass Company. His line of handcrafted glassware, consisting of animals, paperweights, tableware and other decorative pieces, is internationally famous with many pieces being highly sought after by many glass collectors. He died in his hometown of Cambridge, Ohio.  (bio by: Bigwoo)  Family links:  Parents:  Orie John Mosser (1886 – 1966)  Barbara Jane Hague Mosser (1884 – 1977)  Spouse:  Georgianna Bell Mosser (1931 – 2014)* *Calculated relationship
