Glass Collector

When I was in Joplin last week teaching, I stayed with a man my ager and his 91 year old sister. It was a very nice two days. He is an avid glass collector. His collection was all over his house in cabinets and shelves. The thing I noticed that his collection was so varied. But, he had the same shaped pieces in different colors and different sizes. The colors were really beautiful. A lot of it was from the Lefton company. I think they are out of business now. I hope you enjoy his collection as much as I did.
