"100 Years of Venetian Glass - 1866 to 1966"


Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 7:00PM

St. Michael's Church - 99th Street between Broadway and

Amsterdam Avenue

The New York Metropolitan Glass Club is pleased to announce that Glass Club
member Sheldon Barr will lead off the 2013-2014 season with a lecture on
Venetian glass over the period from 1866 through 1966.  He will trace the
use of antique glass-making techniques and designs in the glass created over
this 100-year span.  He will also detail auction results for major pieces of
Venetian glass over the past ten years.

Sheldon is a noted author and dealer in the Venetian glass of this period.
His first book, "Venetian Glass, Confections in Glass, 1855-1914," appeared
in 1998.  It was followed by his second work, "Venetian Glass Mosaics,
1860-1917," published in 2008.  His latest book, "Nineteenth Century
Venetian Glass Masterpieces," is nearing completion.  Sheldon has written a
number of articles on Venetian glass, particularly for The Magazine
Antiques.  He has lectured widely - locally as well as at Stanford
University and the Corning Museum of Glass. 

Another fellow-member, Paul Doros, is the author of "the Art Glass of Louis
Comfort Tiffany" which will be released September 10.  He will be holding a
book-signing prior to this meeting.

We have a new and exciting Club website which will make it easier for
members and the Club to stay in touch between meetings.  Check it out at
