MY GLASS DUCHESS
~ ~ ~ 1998 NDGA Convention Displays ~ ~ ~
The 1998 National Depression Glass Association convention in San Antonio featured more than 25 displays of glassware from private collections across the country. Represented here are patterns made by Tiffin, Cambridge, Fostoria, Fenton and Hocking...plus a few pieces of Roseville pottery and a whole tableful of Vernon Kilns' Organdie.
Multi-hued Tiffin shapes form a glorious display by Kelly O'Kane, St. Paul, Minnesota.
Brunch at Kent's
Cambridge gold-encrusted Rose Point meets Vernon Kilns' Organdie (the only pottery on display) from collections of show chairman Kent Washburn, arranged by Patty and Bill Foti, North Miami, Florida.
Fostoria's rich amber color -- plain and etched -- is presented by Milbra Long and Emily Seate, Cleburne, Texas
Fenton Fantasy in Cranberry
Vintage lamps cast a soft glow on Fenton's cranberry hobnail glass, arranged on lace by Sarah and David van Dalsem, Sand Springs, Oklahoma.
Think Orchid, think Heisey....but Fostoria's exotic Orchid is every bit as elegant in this tableau by Milbra Long and Emily Seate, Cleburne, Texas.
Experimental, Colors from the Morgue
Fostoria's American was produced for decades in crystal, but splashes of "experimental" ruby and amber enliven this showcase, one of the first displays to catch the eye of NDGA convention visitors. Col. Edward Black, Jr. (Ret.), Denver, Colorado, has gathered examples of these rare colors, which also include milk glass, pink and green.
Springtime in the Rockies
Sunshine yellow daisies fill a Roseville vase whose matching tea set and candleholders accent Hocking's Princess pattern. Note the hard-to-find pitcher, tumblers and octagonal salad bowl on a table set by Jackie and Les Stewart, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Christmas in Colorado
Combining deco lines of crystal Queen Mary and graceful curves of a Forest Green punch set, pitchers and stems -- all by Hocking Glass Co. -- the Stewarts create a festive holiday table.
