Our 2018 convention was held at the Salt Fork Lodge in OH. Friday we toured the Mosser Glass Factory and showroom. They took us downstairs to see the workers blowing pumpkins and pressing glass coasters. In the afternoon we toured the National Museum of Cambridge Glass. It turns out that Cambridge made 3 mini lamps. They were Smith #260 Princess, Smith 2 #223 Duchess, and Smith 2 #224 Countess. The museum has an example of all 3 lamps there, along with many other pieces in so many colors. That evening we had our group meal, along with speaker Larry Everett of the Cambridge Museum.
Saturday morning finished off with our business meeting. where Kathy presented our Smith 1 & 2 data base from the website to the group. You can find more on this under the Website Update article. Please think about joining us next year. You'll get to meet nice people, see interesting things, and talk lamps. What more could you ask for?
