Glassware...Everywhere!

I was lucky enough to attend the 42nd annual glass show sponsored by the Peach State Depression Glass Club last weekend in Marietta, GA. Their theme was "What's in Your Cabinet?" and featured the wares of 28 dealers as well as seminars and exhibits. Glasswares ranged from antique and depression era through mid-century to (almost) contemporary.

There were so many beautiful examples of the glassmaker's art in all sizes, shapes and colors. Most were functional but some were purely decorative. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and of course couldn't resist picking up a few things!

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the glass -- be prepared for lots of photos!








While there was a lot of clear glass represented, it was definitely the pieces made of colored glass that caught my eye this year!



I was enchanted by the blue glass napkin rings with hand-painted flowers in white. But they were more than my napkin ring budget would permit...

I hadn't seen this type of purple glassware and I should have come home with it!







There was a smattering of china -- loved the shape of the handles and the double rings of color on these!

These are 1950-60's TV lamps; I showcased ours in Tea and Cinnamon Toast. Their eyes will glow when the lamps are turned on.



These are gorgeous iridescent pastel milk glass.






I hope you enjoyed this short tour of the show. I have lots of photos so I may do another post. Until then if you'd like to see more you can visit last year's post at Vintage Glassware. Perhaps there will be a similar glass show held near you!

  1. Oh, thank you for sharing this photos. I've attended this show in the past and so enjoyed it. It's almost like a sensory overload to be in the room with all this beautiful glass. One of these summers I'll get back to the show, but thank you for taking me there in pictures.

    1. Oh, it was heavenly! And all the dealers had cleaned the glassware so it caught the light and sparkled. So different from finding it shoved in the back of the dusty shelves of antique malls. Thanks for visiting!

  7. How wonderful to see all that glass in one place. I don't believe I have ever seen the mauve/purple glass before.

    1. It was kind of like a fantasy, with so many exquisite colors and designs. I meant to go back and check out that milky purple glass, but ran out of time. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I only discovered this show three years ago and have enjoyed it each time. It's so much better than the other glass show I had been going to.
