Jeannette Shade & Novelty, dba, Jeannette Specialty Glass and all its subsidiaries (JSG Oceana, Pawsitively Approved by JSG Oceana and Infinity Memorials by JSG Oceana) announced on February 17, 2020 that the business was being dissolved after serving the glass industry for 116 years.

It is with great pride that we reflect upon the iconic architectural projects that Jeannette Specialty Glass has produced glass for; the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, Ireland Park Monument in Toronto, and the Plaza Park Fountain in San Jose to name a few.  We have produced borosilicate glass for the commercial and industrial lighting industries for the past 44+ years.  Our glass refractors, reflectors, lenses and Rodeo Drives can be seen across the global highways.  Close to home our street lights burn brightly throughout the city of Pittsburgh.

The years have seen the introduction of JSG Oceana, a line of glass kitchen and bath sinks, tile and vanities, sold in big box stores such as Lowes, Home Depot and Ferguson’s as well as many showrooms across the United States, Canada and Europe. The JSG Oceana Cubix Sink received the coveted Archinterious Best of 2014 award.  Our many glass design products include table top, bakeware, memorial urns and pet products which just won the Pet Product News Editor’s Choice Award.

JSG Lighting Division, JSG Oceana Kitchen & Bath Division and Pawsitively Approved Division is now completely out of stock and will no longer be able to ship any product.  Our final LOT purchase is complete.

As the CEO, I would like to thank all of our customers for their support throughout the years.  The final closing will take place in 2020, please allow this to serve as our announcement to you.
