Thank you to all who participated in the Glassmakers Exhibit in 2011.
“New Hampshire Glassmakers: 1780-1886” celebrates the extraordinary glass manufacturing industry in the Granite State from the Revolutionary War era through the Industrial Revolution. New Hampshire was home to five early American glasshouses, producing bottles, flasks, and tableware for more than a century. Working under cruelly primitive working conditions, early glassmakers conquered their harsh environment to produce wonderful utilitarian objects and creative works of art.
Glasshouses located in Temple, Stoddard, Keene, Suncook, and Lyndeborough – all within a 30-mile radius of Peterborough -- produced some of the greatest glass in American history. Some 250 rare examples, many of them never before exhibited in public, will now be assembled under one roof. The curators have also arranged a series of five provocative lectures by eminent glass historians and scholars to provide a stimulating, informative event for collectors, historians, and scholars across New England and beyond.
