Just a few weeks now until the next National Glass Fair takes place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull on Sunday 11th May.
We are expecting the usual fabulous selection of quality glass of all ages and styles from our exhibitors both old and new, ranging from Galle to Georgian, paperweights to pate de verre, custard cups to contemporary pieces, jewellery to jelly glasses and everything in between!
We are pleased to tell you that collectables expert Mark Hill will be attending and launching a new book, 'Skrdlovice & Beranek: Legends of Glass' by Robert Bevan-Jones and Jindrich Parik. The market in Czech glass still has a lot of potential and this book will surely help by giving would-be collectors new insights into this particular area.
There will also be an exhibition of pressed glass from exhibitor Philip Housden which he has called 'Primrose Pearline and the Copyists' and, as the name suggests, this will feature pieces of Davidson Primrose Pearline glass plus some examples of similar versions by other manufacturers.
We will post more news soon but, until then, do make a note of the date in your diary so as not to miss a great day out.www.nationalglassfair.com
