News-Antique.com - Sep 25,2009 - The 20-30-40s Glass Society of Illinois will once again be providing a display of Depression Era Glassware at the Orland Park Library at 14921 S Ravinia Avenue, Orland Park, IL. This will be the fourth year that the society has provided a display. The 2010 glassware display is schedule for the months of May and June. The display will be in the main foyer as you enter the library.
I try to provide a different display of glass each year. There are 8 display cases each having 4 - 3 foot shelves that need to be filled. My plan is to have eight Glassware Companies represented in each case, each having their own case in 2010. The glassware manufacturers that will be represented are: Hocking, Jeannette, Federal, Hazel Atlas, MacBeth-Evans, Indiana, Imperial and Westmoreland Glass Companies.
By providing this display the society hopes to fulfill it's main purpose in educating the public about the American Glass Companies and there history and the importance of continuing it's preservation.
This is also a good way to gain exposure for our club so that we can attain new members and new collectors which helps to keep our organization alive and well.
