Item Description

The winning bidder will receive a voucher for up to 4 people to visit the Sanwich Glass Museum. 

Sandwich Glass Museum is a glass museum in Sandwich, Massachusetts, featuring a wide range of rare glass, including glass from the local Boston & Sandwich Glass Factory which was founded in Sandwich by Deming Jarves in 1825. The Sandwich glass works primarily manufactured pressed lead-based glass, and was known for its use of color.[1] The museum also has a live glass blower, and exhibits detailing the creation and coloring of various types of rare glass.[2]

It has a furnace for clear glass heated to 2200 deg F that it runs 24x7 that shuts down only five years, and a computerized annealing oven to slowly cool down over a full day any new creations to help prevent cracking.

The live demo has variety of what's being created depending on time of year and nearby holidays, includes glass-blowing, shaping, mold-forming and adding bits of glass color, and the museum also has a historical movie that plays once per hour, and otherwise is a series of galleries each focused on a time period or glass creation techniques.

There is a shop at the end featuring consignment and museum-created items.
