Pressed in History


September 19, 2020 - January 17, 2021

Discover a spectrum of pressed glass from the 19th and 20th centuries in North America with an emphasis on the Maritimes!

Through a wide range of glass types such as jadeite, carnival, goofus, milk, depression and uranium, Pressed in History invites the public to explore the evolution of glass works. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, North American glassworks produced glass tableware of unparalleled quality for consumers of all tastes and means.
