The International Carnival Glass Association Convention was held July 11-14 in Springfield, Illinois. Attendees at the convention were invited to visit individual collectors rooms where displays of carnival glass were presented. A display of colorful five-inch to seven-inch plates of many patterns and finishes was available for viewing in the main convention room. Visitors to individual display rooms were able to learn from the collectors about patterns from various manufacturers and countries. One room display featured glass from Germany, England and Czechoslovakia. Seeck Auctions ended the convention with the sale of a portion of the Leonard Collection of carnival glass. Details of the auction will be included in a future post.
