Joining us again will be dealers from the Moon and Stars Club.
The Show gets bigger and better every year.

We are proud of the fact that every year hundreds of collectors from across the United States gather in Moundsville, WV to visit the museum, attend the glass show and auction. We hope this year will continue the tradition.

The 2020 FGSA Convention theme will be "Finishing Touches for the Table:
Elegant Bowls, Candlesticks and Vases of the 1920's.
The decade of the 1920’s ushered in the era of “Fine Crystal and Colored Glassware” at Fostoria.
Colors were introduced in 1924, and complete dinnerware lines followed in 1925.
The new style of glassware was colorful and lighter in weight with etchings, cuttings and other decorating techniques added to the production process.
