Over 100 years of glass experience through five generations
The Depp Family began working with glass as early as 1878 in Cincinnati, Ohio where John Joseph Depp started out as a glass cutter and quickly rose to shop foreman. In 1880, after a move to New York he began work at a plate glass shop that was importing glass and mirrors from Belgium where he became a partner.
His Son, also John Joseph Depp began training with his father at the glass business at the young age of 13. After traveling around and continuing to work in the glass industry he made his way back to New York and soon after opened his own glass shop in 1922. His three sons, John Walter, Wesley, and Harold also entered the glass business with him. Eventually, John Walter took over the business after Wesley and Harold left.
John Walters’s son Wesley R. Depp also began in the business at a young age and took over from his father. While running the business along with his brother John C. Depp, they became the premier glass shop for New York’s discerning clients. Today, Wesley R. Depp is still President along with his son Wesley J. Depp, who are still making sure your glass is produced at the highest quality and with the craftsmanship that only five generations of experience can provide.
