Historical Glass Museum presents H.C. Fry Glass Company Seminar

Learn more about one of America’s most interesting glass companies during a special seminar Saturday, March 14, at the Historical Glass Museum in Redlands.

The hour-long H.C. Fry Glass Company Seminar will start at 11 a.m., presented by Historical Glass Museum members Barbara Jenks and Wendy Steelhammer. The H.C. Fry Glass Company operated in Rochester, Pennsylvania, from 1901 to 1933, specializing in fine cut glass and crystal featuring double-process acid etchings of flowers, animals, and birds. Later, the company turned to opalescent oven bakeware and transparent glass dinnerware and stemware.

Jenks and Steelhammer will go over the H.C. Fry Glass Company’s history and display pieces from their collections. Attendees are invited to bring their own glass pieces from the company to show others. Light refreshments will be served, and there will also be a door prize.

For more information, contact the Historical Glass Museum at 909-798-0868. The museum is at 1157 Orange St., Redlands. —Catherine
