What's New at the Museum
October 1, 2016 - Fenton Seminar
On October 1, our Vice President Bill Summers will present another of his popular seminars on Fenton glass. This one is entitled: Fenton: 70 Oz. Pitchers and Tumblers 1908-1950s. The presentation will be held at the Historical Glass Museum, beginning at approximately 11:00am. Refreshments will be served.
August 13-14 - Sacramento Glass Show
The International Depression Glass Club of Sacramento gave us permission to set up a table to advertise the Museum at their show in August. The table featured a poster board with photos from the Museum, some sample glass and membership applications and rack cards. There was quite a bit of interest in the display, as people were surprised to find out that California had a museum dedicated to American glass and a number of visitors to the show took rack cards for the purpose of visiting the Museum. We wish to thank the IDGC for allowing us to set up the table.
June 19, 2016 Fenton Seminar - "Fenton: One year, One month or One run"
There was another presentation on Fenton Glass by our Vice President Bill Summers, held on June 19 at 11:00am. These presentations have been very popular, and Bill is an excellent presenter. The topic was Rare Fenton pieces that were available for "one year, one month, or one run! Attendees saw some items that are very rarely rare seen! Some were from our museum collection and some were from Bill's collection. Attendees were invited to bring their own Fenton finds to share with other attendees.
