Salt Box Talk Revisited

July 31, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented by Wayne Smith “Crystal in the House – The Georgian Glassware Collection at North Hills”, Tuesday, July 31, 2018 from 7-9pm. Join us as we examine the history of glassware in Britain, from the Roman period to the 16th century interpretation of Venetian style glass, to the late 17th century when George Ravenscroft introduced lead oxide to the production process of the beloved clear English Georgian glass created in the 18th century sought after by collectors. We will identify different styles and how politics and war had an effect on design. North Hills Museum has an excellent collection of British glass from the 17th to 19th centuries. To register please call North Hills Museum at 902-532-2168, the cost is $6.00 per person.
