Throughout the Festival Series, the Historical Glass Museum will be open from noon to 4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday.
Each weekend, the museum features a different display from its collection, continuing in May with Steuben art glass, May 5 and 6; Fenton art glass, May 12 and 13; and early American pattern glass, May 19 and 20.
Displayed in antique or specially built lighted cabinets throughout the museum's six rooms, the collection includes representatives from Heisey, Cambridge, Fenton, Fostoria, Steuben the Sandwich factories and American glass makers during the Depression era.
One special collection includes nearly 700 pieces of Jadite glass. Among the many rare items is an 1884 circular spoon rack with a frosted elephant on top, designated as Barnum and Bailey's "Jumbo." Yet another rare item is the Pyrex glass iron made by the Corning Glass Works during World War II when metal was scarce.
