Celebrate the 37th Anniversary of the Annual Collectible Glass Show and Sale at the Cobb Civic Center in Marietta on July 27-28.
Presented by the Peach State Depression Glass Club, this beautiful show is for anyone interested in American glass. There is something for everyone to enjoy, from the novice to the advanced collector. Featuring 28 top dealers from across the nation, you will find booths filled with glass, pottery and kitchenware from the 1880's to the 1970s, with an emphasis on Depression Era and Elegant Glass. Stroll down the wide aisles to find glass from major vendors including Cambridge, Heisey, Fenton, Blenko, and Fostoria, vintage pottery from Roseville, Hull, and others, and a delightful assortment of kitchenware such as Fire King and Jadeite.
Enjoy free educational seminars to learn more about several major glass manufacturers (McKee Glass, Beaumont Glassware and Blenko), along with helpful information on glass identification and starting a glass collection. See the schedule below for more information. Browse our glass displays and have up to three pieces of glass or pottery identified at no charge by our glass ID team.
We are also pleased to announce that John Forrester will have a glass repair shop at this year's show.
