Glass Art

Jeanne and Irving Mathews, whose family-owned Frost Brothers, a high fashion Texas retail chain, began collecting Art Nouveau and Art Deco glass at Paris flea markets on buying trips for the store in the 1960s. What started as a hobby soon turned into a passion for the couple. Over decades of active collecting—beginning at a time when few people were interested in 19th- and early 20th-century French art glass—the Mathews developed one of the finest collections in the United States.
