Classic Glass, Inc. began creating custom decorative glass in 1981 when Karen Elkin and Robert O' Toole opened their glass studio in Old Town, Alexandria. During those early days the company specialized in offering etched, carved and stained glass services to Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland. Over the years Classic Glass' unique glass art and superior craftsmanship earned them the reputation as the leading decorative glass manufacturer in Washington, DC. Since then Classic Glass has moved its operations into a larger facility and expanded its production to include laminated glass, back-painted glass and cast glass.

Classic Glass is an art glass company equipped to handle decorative glass jobs large and small. Glass samples of our various glass art products are available for loan or purchase. Services include: Stained glass repair, Field Measuring, Design, Delivery and Installation.

Classic Glass continues to maintain its independent status and support for local designers, artists and distributors. Additionally, Classic Glass assists area schools, charities and organizations by donating money, time or materials necessary for growth through local fundraiser's. Classic Glass is Washington, DC’s local decorative glass company and area artists have come to rely on our craftsmanship, customer service and quick turnaround.

Classic Glass, Inc. is an approved SWaM vendor and is currently on file with the Virginia Department of Minority Business Enterprises.
