This is the majority of my collection. Click on the pictures to enlarge them for better viewing.

These pictures were taken many years ago when I was packing up to retire and relocate in Florida. I haven't been able to part with any of it, and have since collected more pieces. What you see in the pictures is still packed away, because I haven't made a decision about how to display it.

I have numerous rare pieces in the Westmoreland paneled grape pattern, such as a punch bowl set, wine decanter set, 3-piece cannister set, cheese dish, large platter that is hand-painted with a bicentennial motif, signed and numbered on the back.

I would love to communicate with other such collectors!

    When you see one or two of something you go,"That's nice". When you see a collection you go,"WOW"! So...WOW ! It gives a sense of substance of completeness. I hope you get it displayed soon. Very nice.

    We recently opened a booth in an antique store and I have a suggestion for diplaying your collection. You should pick a group of the collection (ex. all Fenton, or all hobnail, etc.
    Since they are white; display them on a solid colored cloth or with different colored flowers or candy in them--you could theme it along with the season or holidays. This way you get to see your collection, but it doeasn't overwhelm your living space or visitors. Then you rotate it out so you can see different peices throughout the year.
    Another way to view it is to put it on loan to a diplay window at a local library or museum. You could also volunteer to visit scout troops or elementary classes and educate them on the history of the peices.
    I find a lot of milk glass, but there is a lot of it out there and it doesn't sell well right now, but I still love the white hobnail lamps that I inherited that where my Grandmas.

    I am so impressed with your collection, I have a very small collection of the paneled grapes that began with my great-grandmothers set that I inherited when she passed. I love looking for these pieces in antique stores, yard sales and the goodwill. Thank you for sharing your beautiful collection. I would love to someday have as beautiful and complete a collection as you.
