A Word About Glass Defects

In the modern world of cookie-cutter goods, we have come to expect flawless perfection in everything we buy. However, glass is a natural material which contains natural flaws that may be visible to the naked eye. These flaws are unavoidable; even the finest raw materials contain them. The federal government has established specifications, however, that no defects should be visible in the glass when it is viewed horizontally or vertically from 11 feet away under normal lighting.
