The Boston and Sandwich Glass Company was incorporated in 1826 to hold the glass factory built a year earlier in Sandwich, Massachusetts, by Deming Jarves. The factory was closed in 1888 amid disputes with a newly formed glassmakers' labor union.[1]

The factory was one of the earliest to produce pressed glass.[2]

The company was an employer of Nicholas Lutz.[3] The Sandwich Glass Museum now contains many pieces from the company.
