Meeting Highlights & Program


April 2015


Ed provided an innovative program of unusual and favorite stems from his collection of over 1000!  Ed collects examples of stems from a wide variety of manufacturers.  Through frequent Show and Tell items, club members have known about his love of cordials; the depth of his collection of other sizes was a very pleasant surprise.  Stems are a great canvas for patterns and the way those patterns are married to the shape of the bowl, stem, and foot make for some amazing art.  Ed's selections for the evening also highlighted the glorious colors for which many of the companies represented were known.

  • Lotus goblet with etching and gold trim

  • Tiffin's Pink Rain goblet with the pattern molded into the bowl of the goblet, not cut
