ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The National Glass Fair, is the twice yearly flagship event at the prestigious venue of the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull for the well named Specialist Glass Fair company. 

The event is where real glass enthusiasts, collectors and trade gather twice a year to gorge on the glass shown by expert dealers and collectdors.  The breadth of quality and and variety of the glass offered for sale attracts glass aficionados and collectors from across the trade and public domains and the organisers always offer a unqiue exhibition to complement the eye popping glass displays.

Organiser Paul Bishop of Specialist Glass Fairs told ANF: "A specialist event like this 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!

Exhibitors are drawn from across the UK and Europe always bring their very best stock to this event, so it really is a fascinating experience to visit one of these fairs and, if it is your first time, we can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

We strive to offer a good mix of both 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. The malleability of glass allows for limitless creativity, and artists and artisans through the years have produced a wide variety of items from the practical to the purely decorative, from jewellery to paperweights, and figurines to exquisite drinking vessels."

Around 80 specialist exhibitors will stand together with industry experts in all types and periods of glass.

Marris Antique Glass - Wine Glass by Harry Powell £650.00

Minerbi wine glass the bowl with melted in pulled up threads on a twisted four rod stem. Designed by Harry Powell 1906.  Made by J Powell & Sons London. This glass is from a 400 piece service made for the Italian diplomat, Count Minerbi in 1906.

Glasses from this service are illustrated in Whitefriars Glass 'The Art of James Powell & Sons' Edited by Lesley Jackson 1996. p.107, plate 45.

Condition Very good.

 

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Contemporary studio glass is a big collecting area and is well represented at the fair by a number of glass artists using various techniques such as graal, cameo engraving and blown work, and there will be some new faces joining regular old friends at this event.

An impressive group of C20th glass dealers will be vying for attention among the aisles of exhibitors dealing in antique and collectable glass, including Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau or Art Deco, ranging across the two large halls.

The exhibition for May 2019 will be Norwegian glass from a private collection.
