Nicholas Kopp & American Glass

  •  I hope everyone can join me Tuesday at 6PM MST, 7PM CST for our weekly chat. This week I have the pleasure of discussing Nicholas Kopp & American Glass with truly one of the world experts in the field, Therese Hill. Many of you saw the talk a couple of months ago on Fostoria Crystal, featuring Therese's husband, Terrence. It's one of the highest rated shows we've done, although I still haven't forgiven Terrence for throwing that heavy piece of Fostoria my way! I hope that Therese isn't coming with any tricks or props! NIcholas Kopp, Jr, pioneered selenium red glass in the 1890's and was associated with Hobbs Glass, Fostoria Lamp & Shade, Consolidated Lamp & Glass, and Kopp Glass Co. Therese will take us through this high period of American glass, from 1890 to 1930, and she'll be showing us great examples from the Hill's collection. Gary
