PERALTA RODRIGUEZ, José Roberto. Raw material, ovens and tools in production of glass in México City. Century XVIII. Estud. hist. novohisp [online]. 2018, n.58, pp.3-29. ISSN 2448-6922.

The glass makers from New Spain adapted their production to local resources and conditions. The purity of materials (minerals and vegetable salt) was a matter of attention as it influenced in the quality of glass. The first were obtained from haciendas and caleras devoted to mineral processing and the second was soon replaced by local tequexquite and saltpetre. Oven architecture and tools were similar to those from Spain. The analysis of glass production conditions allows for a survey of its investment requirements and of the circumstances that permitted its prosperity in Mexico City.

Palabras llave : glass from New Spain; nitre; furnace of glass; Century XVIII.
