A Very Private Collection of vintage glass ...1875-1920

 "A Very Private Collection..." featuring glass from 1875-1920 represents a time when families used a mix of crystal and  colorful tableware daily or when entertaining guests.  Many of the pieces are considered glass from the Victorian Period.  The gold edges on some items adds a touch of elegence not seen in later periods.  A mixed arrangement of seldom seen and very rare pieces of glass on loan from the collector will remain on display through August 26, 2018 in the OGM Gallery to dazzle the viewer. 

Multiple pieces of glass donated to OGM are displayed in other cabinets in appreciation of the donors' efforts to preserve our glass heritage. The museum collections will rotate in and out during other special displays on loan throughout the coming years.
