The 2011 Stretch Glass Society's Convention is but a memory – a very cherished memory – for all who attended. In 2011 we learned about stretch glass comports. The live auction that Bill Richards had on Friday, July 29th in the display room had a wide range of Stretch Glass pieces. There were a number of lucky bidders who got to take some of this great stretch glass home with them. We hope you enjoy these highlights from the 2011 Stretch Glass Convention, Show & Sale:
I say Compote, you say Comport
The club display was (as you possibly guessed from the title of this announcement)
“Compotes / Comports”. Imperial: Comport, #44/50, Flared, 18 rays, Red, 7-1/2" h.
com.port \’kam-,po(e)rt,\ n : compote 2
com.pote \’kam-,pot\ n1 : fruits cooked in syrup 2 : a bowl of glass, porcelain or metal usually with a base and stem and sometimes a cover from which compotes, fruits, nuts or sweets are served
We were only of course be concerned with those made of glass and stretch glass in particular.
