From the beginning of the century to the 1920's, the needle etch technique was most popular. Needle etched glass was an acid etching technique applied to thin glass. In the needle etching process, a glass blank was coated with wax. A skilled setter used a complex machine to carve a repeating pattern in the glass, then the piece was placed in an acid dip to create the pattern.
