Some historical glass pictures from the Philadelphia Museum Of Art

Sandor Fuss visited me at Peach Ridge recently in Houston and said he was headed east during the following week for business. Sandor, like myself, builds glass adventures around business trips and in this instance, he was planning on visiting two prominant private collections and was making a stop at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I assume he saw many pieces of the Allaire Collection during his visit. Their American historical glass collection is rather well known and Sandor was kind enough to send a few pictures for posting.
