The Carnival Glass Society curated an exciting exhibition of glassware at the November 2017 National Glass Fair.

This stunning collection includes:

  • Rare examples of European carnival and other glass.

  • Numerous items of glass by Sowerby glass - both in carnival and non carnival glass.

  • Exceptional American and unusual Indian carnival glass items.

  • Various items that are related to carnival glass, such as a set of Sowerby ‘Royal Swan’ salts, striking Art Deco vases and various crucifix candlesticks.  

Around 100 items of glass from the collection were on display on the day of the Noveber 2017 National Glass Fair. The Carnival Glass Society also used the exhibition as an opportunity to promote their ‘Let’s Get Physical Programme.’
