Glass Association Event

Glass Collector’s Day – View a Member's Collection.
Saturday - 22nd April 2017

  The location is a rural area midway between Nottingham and Newark with easy access, but only by car.

The cost is £10 per person for Glass Association & Glass Circle members.

  A diverse collection of around 2000 pieces are displayed in cabinets in a first floor gallery. The collection, which has evolved over several years, covers pressed glass, commemoratives, older beer steins and Victorian drinking glasses. There are several pieces in the collection that are of unknown provenance and it is hoped that those attending may be able to identify them.
