The major display for the 2013 HOACGA convention will be “White Carnival Glass”. There has always been some discussion as to what is “White Carnival”. For the purpose of this display it can be “Frosty” or “Clear” iridized glass. We will leave the discussion of what is “White Carnival” to another time and place.

Your help is needed again, so would you make a listing of the “White” pieces in your collectin and send that list to Bob Grissom bgrsm31@comcast.net. I need to know the PATTERN, MAKER, ITEM (plate, bowl, compote, etc), SIZE(4″,6″,7″, sauce, master, etc), EDGE(ruffled, ICS, PCE, etc), FOOTED(footed or collar base) and any special comments about the piece.

I will record all of the items and later, you will get a list of your items that are needed for the display. Remember, the display can only be as good as you help make it.  IF YOU HAVE A ROOM DISPLAY, PLEASE SIGN IN AT THE REGISTRATION DESK. AND SET UP YOUR DISPLAYS SO THEY ARE VIEWABLE FROM OUTSIDE THE ROOM.
