Over the past 36 years, the Westchester Glass Club’s annual Collectors Show and Sale has been devoted solely to high-quality glass, but this year the show will expand to include quality ceramics.
Glass of all periods, including early blown, mold-blown, and pressed as well as studio art glass, brilliant cut, Depression era, engraved, early bottles, and European art glass, will continue to be offered for sale at the show at the Greenwich Civic Center in Old Greenwich, Connecticut, on April 27 and April 28.
According to a press release from the club, the inclusion of ceramics is a logical expansion of the show and in keeping with current collecting trends.
The show will continue to feature a topical lecture by an expert in the field; it is free to all attending the show. This year, authors and researchers Brandt and Mark Zipp of Crocker Farm Auctions will give a talk, “Manhattan Stoneware 1795-1820,” at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. In addition, there will be exhibits by authors offering signed copies of their books about glass and ceramics for sale and educational displays by glass museums, including the New Bedford Museum of Glass and the Museum of Connecticut Glass. Glass repair and glass identification will again be available.
Show hours are Saturday, April 27, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, April 28, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $7, or $6 when accompanied by a show card or advertisement. For information, contact show comanagers Al Adams at (203) 394-8956 or Jim Russell at (203) 438-1806; e-mail <Adams7562@att.net>.
