The Antique American Glass sale will be held on March 8 and 9 at the Concord Plaza Midwest Conference Center, 401 W. Lake St., Northlake.
The sale is sponsored by the 20-30-40 Glass Society of Illinois. Members are collectors of American-made depression era glass, handmade glass, pottery and related material. Proceeds from the show are donated to glass museums that help to preserve the American-made glass story.
There will be more than 25 dealers from around the country. The glass and pottery that will be for sale is all American-made.
They will have early American pattern glass, elegant or handmade glassware, depression glassware, kitchen glassware, Pyrex, Fire King and Fenton. There will be items to help set the table, such as linens and silverware.
All weekend, there will be a glass identification table. The public is encouraged to bring in that piece of glass to be identified. The members will use the club’s extensive reference library to help in the identification.
There will be a crystal repair service all weekend also. They will have hourly door prizes and a raffle of antique American glass. The winner of the raffle will be drawn late in the day on Sunday, but the winner need not be present.
The public is invited from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 8 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 9. Admission is $8.
The society meets six times a year to celebrate the beauty of American-made glassware and pottery and holds programs and displays on elegant or handmade glassware and depression era glass. For information contact Jan Schleinzer, at 630-851- 4504 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
