Ysart Glass in Perth Museum all locked up in the basement again.
« on: February 21, 2017, 08:59:36 PM »
I went in today to check some colours and found, to my disgust, that all the glass has been taken off display and locked up in the basement again.
 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

There are some old clothes there instead. >:(

They're going to be "refurbishing" and buliding a cafe. The glass might get to see the light of day again, in 1021.

If anybody wants to see any of the glass in the meantime, you will have to contact them to make an appointment with the museum and ask for the things you want to see to be brought out specially for you.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Wow! 1021? They are going back to the Middle Ages? I will have to borrow Doctor Who's Tardis next time I think about visiting.  ;D

Sorry, sausage fingers.
But a time machine is still required unless you make a specific appointment.
I wanted to check the different colours of Stuart Strathearn Dark Crystal.
There is an image of the catalogue photo on Scotland's Glass, but it's impossible to make the colours out.
