Treasures From The Collection: Museum of American Glass

Since the founding of the Museum of American Glass 38 years ago, the museum’s collection has steadily grown to the current number of 15,000 pieces of American glass. This year’s exhibition celebrates 38 years of collecting and focuses on the most significant 125 pieces in the collection. The examples range from a glass jar attributed to the first successful glass factory in America to pieces of contemporary studio glass. The treasures were chosen not only for their appearance and craftsmanship but also for their historical importance in telling the story of glass manufacture in the United States.
