Participants will have the rare opportunity to go behind the “velvet ropes” and enter into the Oglebay Mansion Museum’s period rooms and Glass Museum’s display cases for hands on inspection and discussion of the period item's physical characteristics. The class will highlight popular American decorative styles: Federal (1790 - 1810); Empire (1810 - 1840); Victorian (1840 - 1900) and early 20th century. Social history, lifestyles, valuation of furniture and decorative arts in today’s marketplace will be highlighted.
Also included: Participants will have an opportunity to work in the glass studio with a glass artist to create a paperweight and tour of surrounding points of interest to compare and contrast the pieces viewed in the museum.
