Forever in Bloom: Florals Depicted in Glass
Venue: Sandwich Glass Museum
The Sandwich Glass Museum is pleased to present its Winter Exhibition, Forever in Bloom: Florals Depicted in Glass, as part of its 12th Annual Glassblowers' Christmas celebration. This colorful display will brighten any winter's day with works from the Victorian era, as well as examples from some of our glass artists. ///// Although floral motifs were always popular, they gained momentum during the late 19th century. The language of flowers or floriography, blossomed during the Victorian era when floral gifts were encoded with secret messages. ///// Keeping up with the trend, floral motifs were depicted on a wide range of items produced by the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company (1825-1888). Today, glass artists feature flowers in many forms. We hope you will join us during the holidays for an early glimpse of Spring in Forever in Bloom. Check our website for hours, dates of closure, admissions.. CDC/State protocols in place.
