Glass Study Group - August 14, 2003
The August glass study group theme was glass with People. As the snap shot shows it was a diverse offering indeed. From the elegant Cambridge glass Draped Lady and Bashful Charlotte flower frogs to Santa Claus figural Christmas bulbs! We had cup plates with people imagery, bottles, pattern glass, Malachite art glass (the dark green nudes vase) and more. Those are Fenton's praying children in Peking Blue from the 1970s and the green bottle is Moses, a Poland Water Bottle form used for whiskey mid 19th century. The cobalt blue bottle is a 1950s copy of a 19th century Historical flask. This colorful one held Lestoil, a household cleaning product. Several decorations on stemware (from Central Glass to US Glass Co.) were shared. The group was amazed at how much and how diverse the glass embraces the human form!
