Items from Jeannette's three former glass factories that Kim and Bob Wilding have collected and displayed will be carried out the door of their former city business by new owners. It's a sad thought for Kim Wilding.
"It's the only tribute that has been paid to this city and its glass workers, and once it's gone there's nothing else," she said. "I love the city's glass."
Pieces of the Westmoreland Glass Museum -- from tomato-colored mixing bowls to lacy-edged milk glass serving plates -- will be auctioned off to the highest bidders. It is the final of several auctions at the Wilding's former store, the Jeannette Antique Mall on Clay Avenue.
