TRAVEL THEME: GLASS

VISIT TO CAMBRIDGE GLASS MUSEUM

Last year I visited the Cambridge Glass Museum, where I saw a wonderful collection of Cambridge Glass and given a guided tour showing how glass was made in the early 1900th. 

Below are some of the photos I took of the elegant chandelier and dinnerware.  Also a slideshow showing how the glass pieces were made.
