Best Answer

The whole glass thing came from a mix up in words. Charles Perrault wrote the familiar version of the story in the 17th century and at the time squirrel fur (whcih is what he wrote)was called "Vair". Unfortunetly "Verre" meant glass. In the earliest writings from ancient china there is no mention of glass or squirrel fur; gold thread with solid gold soles is fairly popular.
