The Pairpoint manufacturing company was established in 1880 in new Bedford, MA. Producing coffin fittings and metalwork, Pairpoint approached its neighbor, Mt. Washington glassworks, about a possible merger. Combining metalwork and glassware production in 1894, their merger created lamp and lamp accessories including the well known Pairpoint lamps.

The Pairpoint merger:
From circa 1895 to 1930, the newly formed company was best known for their blown glass shades in three types: blown out reversed painted shades, ribbed reverse painted scenic shades, and landscape shades. Cut glass lamps and lamps with metal overlay were also produced by Pairpoint during this period.
