Hi:

thought I would post this article about an Ancient Glassworks.  The Glass Museum in Toronto (Royal Ontario Musuem) lacked the space for this large collection for it, so it was suggested it come here - Which it did.

Here is the info on it, just click:  *THE MINDEN GLASS COLLECTION  Some Good Glass reading there.

Guess I should attend it to see it. ;)

Will you do a 'report' on it Rose?
