Fran Taylor’s Competition with Tom Felt


Tom Felt

Description

Gay Fad was a leader in mid-century design, but was not alone. Tom Felt will present an overview of the other main players in the decorating game: Georges Briard, Fred Press, William A. Meier, Ceraglass, Culver — with maybe a few surprises along the way. The mid-century era saw an explosion of interest in decorated barware and serving pieces as the cocktail party became a mainstay of entertaining — a trend that is delightfully being repeated today as young sophisticates rediscover these mid-century pieces and give them new life.

Hosted at the Ohio Glass Museum on June 23 at 2 p.m.
