Love Glassware?

Sunday 24th February will bring the seventh outing of the prestigious Glass Fair at Knebworth House, where around 70 exhibitors turn up to see their wares at the House Barns complex.

Knebworth House is set in its own deer park situated just off the A1M at J7 (Stevenage) and is within striking distance of London and easily accessible from all other locations.

The fair showcases all types and ages of antique and contemporary glass, where exhibitors focus on bringing a varied selection of their most desirable and collectable items. These people are specialists in their subject, so visitors can be assured of benefiting from their experience and passion.

Glass from all periods and genres will be offered for sale: from fine quality antiques to Continental high design; from retro collectables to pressed glass and paperweights; from jewellery to Georgian drinking glasses.

Contemporary studio glass is another field of great interest to collectors and is always well represented by a number of highly skilled glass artists showing their own work, from hand blown cameo and graal pieces through to sculpture, kilnforming, engraving, pate de verre and lampwork.

Antiques Roadshow celebrity and Author, Andy McConnell, will be attending the fair signing copies of his latest book, ‘The Decanter Ancient to Modern’ which was published last November, after 18-years in the making. There will also be a glassblowing demonstration by E+M Glass, which will be a real treat for visitors.

The fair is open from 10.30am until 4pm and admission is £5. Refreshments are available and there is also free parking.
