    The Cranford Historical Society presents “Early American Art Glass: Tiffany, Quezal, Durand” with Vic Bary on Sunday, March 30, 2014 at the Crane-Phillips House Museum from 2:00-4:00pm. Program begins at 2:15pm. The Crane-Phillips House Museum is located at 124 North Union Avenue, Cranford. Art glass, hand-blown vases and lamp shades made for decorative purposes, flourished from the turn of the 20th century to the Great Depression. Its earliest incantations were influenced by the Art Nouveau movement, and sought to mimic natural forms, such as the jack-in-the pulpit, gourds, and various flowers. It also drew from the forms used by historical cultures and from recent discoveries of ancient Egyptian burial sites. Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was the earliest and most prominent force in the production of American art glass, aided by an artistic eye and a family fortune. Individuals who were either glass mixers or glass blowers for Tiffany would be central to two of the great successor American art glass firms - the Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Company, and the "fancy shop" Victor Durand Jr.'s Vineland Flint Glass Works.. Cranford Historical Society Trustee and art glass collector Vic Bary will lead an historical and visual tour through the output of these three important American art glass firms with copious visuals and a few examples. Admission is free. Space is limited so reservations are required. To reserve your seat, please call the Historical Society’s office at 908-276-0082 or email us at cranfordhistoricalsociety@verizon.net. Established in 1928, the Cranford Historical Society, a non-profit organization, has been dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of Cranford’s history.
