SAINT AUGUSTINE – The Sept. 5 Lightner Musuem Curator’s Tour is “Cast in Glass,” spotlighting 19th and early 20th Century pressed glass.
Lightner Museum Curator Barry Myers conducts monthly tours featuring unique and special treasures of the Museum. The tours are the first Wednesday of each month at 10am and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few of the Lightner’s eclectic relics.
Pressed glass, also known as patterned glass, began being manufactured c. 1825. Throughout the tour Myers will explain the history of glass, how it is made and how it brought elegance to the middle class dining room tables.
