This program focuses on glassware made primarily in the Western Pennsylvania area. Around the beginning of the 20th Century there were more than 750 known glass firms between Johnstown, PA and Pittsburgh. These firms all produced pattern glass. This was an abundant and prolific product until mass production increased and cheaper methods were adopted. The heyday for these interesting wares occurred from 1850 to 1910. Mrs. King will tell the story of the glass that became famous in America, and she’ll display samples and selections from her personal collection for you to inspect and then recall: “My grandma had one of those!”
Program will be held from 7-9 p.m. at the Maridon Museum, 322 North McKean St., Butler, PA. This program is free, but reservations are required, please call 724.282.0123.
