I’ve just returned from a productive buying trip to Western Pennsylvania and “The Near Mid-West.” Included in my cache is a collection of 1950’s “Fostoria” stems—champagne, wine, sparkling wine, and water glasses—blown with a tinge of blue. Additionally, I’ve bought several new sets of champagne coupes, tumblers and a few wine glasses.
I often find a lot of glassware at estate sales in this region. Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia were the nexus of American glass-making in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, due in large part to the many Eastern Europeans who settled in the area—bringing with them the well-honed glass-making skills of their native lands.
Stop into the shop to see the newest additions. We look forward to seeing you.
