Collecting Vintage CAMBRIDGE GLASS

[Published 8/4/08]

My good friend Roger Rhodes recently had an article he wrote published in the Lima News paper. It's a recounting of the fun he had attending the recent Cambridge Glass Convention.

He writes:

" Considering these tight economic times and the high price of gasoline, my wife, Linda, and I decided to spend our summer vacation in Ohio. Friends Lyle and Linda Stemen from Toledo are avid Cambridge Glass collectors and attend the yearly convention of the National Cambridge Collectors Inc., a national organization dedicated to the study and preservation of glass produced by the Cambridge Glass Co. in Cambridge, Ohio. This year they invited us to tag along.
It seemed like a good idea. I didn't know anything about Cambridge Glass. I had a lot to learn. It was the 35th annual Convention, held June 25 to 29, with them theme "The Elegance of Cambridge Glass." "

Be sure to watch the slide show at the top of the National Cambridge Collectors, Inc. home page, and you'll see some stunning rare Cambridge glass items-- wow!

Check out their museum pix, too. Here's a sampling ...
