ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The National Glass Fair returns for its winter outing on Sunday 10 November at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham.

This specialist event is a great opportunity for enthusiasts to meet other like-minded individuals and to browse the spectacular array of exciting pieces on sale, plus there is always the possibility of finding a bargain - or haggling your way to one!

Organisers Specialist Glass Fairs always strive to achieve a good mix of antique, collectable and contemporary pieces as we believe it is important that as many genres of glass as possible are represented in all of their diverse and fascinating forms.  They appreciate that glass artists and artisans down the ages have produced such a huge variety of artefacts from the utilitarian to the finest decorative items, from exquisite jewellery to paperweights and from whimsical animal figures to Georgian drinking glasses etc and twice a year, May and November, this real collectors gem of a fair is packed to capacity.

In addition to the usual mix of antique, collectable and contemporary glass the festive season beckons and there is plenty of inspiration for the Christmas table in the foyer display with contemproary and vintage decorations for the tree or table.

With around 70 stands, the exhibitors include specialists in all types and periods of glass. To see the full exhibitor list click here: National Glass Fair Exhibitors November 2019.
