Glass has different melting points depending on what the composition of the glass actually is. Standard soda lime glass (the most common kind of glass) melts at something on the order of 1500 °C, or about 2700 °F, while top drawer silicon oxide has a glass melting point of in excess of 2300 °C, or some 4200 °F.
