EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 28 B| 1937 II ll r- EARLY AMERICAN PRESSED GLASS SHOWN AT MEETING Department Hears Talk at Library Mrs, Stanley Haynes Shows Items From Collection of Glass. "Early American Pressed Glass" ·was discussed by Mrs. Stanley Haynes at the meeting of the Woman's cluo arc department Wednesday afternoon in the library assembly. Mrs. Haynes who makes a hobby of early American glass had a number of pieces from her collection on display. "Glass making was the first industry of the United States," Mrs. Haynes said. "The invention of glass dates to early history and the honor of inventing it is contested by many nations. Chinese glass goes back to unbelievable beginnings and excavations in Egypt have shown work dope as early as 2300 B. C. Articles uncovered in Egypt include beads, vases, small figures, objects to be used in inlay, coins and imitations of precious stones. They used the same materials for glass that we do today. Venetian Glass. "The golden' age of glass making was in Venice and the Bohemians acquired : the secrets oJ Venetian glass making and produced a much clearer glass than the Italians. The art of the Venetians in glass making influenced all of Europe. "The first glass to be. made in the United States was made by the Jamestown settlers who were granted .permits to manufacture and imported six workers from England to make beads and bottles. There is a charm about the patterns that endears them to collectors and they carry the romance and sentiment of the period which produced them. Lacy Sandwich. "Except for 10 years, from 1830 to 1840, the New England Glass company and a number o£ other glass factories in the United States produced glass equal to Sandwich giass. During the 10 year period, they produced the so called lacy Sandwich glass. "the beginning glass collector wants to;know 1 the marks which distinguish glass, but these marks may' be disputed. However, old glass seldom runs true to form and has a brilliance and. mellowness and is never entirely color- Jess. There are more than 400 patterns which are collectible in sets. Only pieces which may be . directly .traced are marked authentic by museums." ' . ' · ' · · " Exhibited Pieces. Mrs. Haynes concluded her talk by exhibiting the various pieces of glass which she had on display, telling what pattern PREPARATIONS TO BE MADE FOR SPRING RECITAL All dancing students of the Y. W. C.
