The 21th Annual Elegant and Depression Glass Show and Sale will be held on July 18-19, in the Exhibitor Building at The Fairgrounds Nashville (formerly Tennessee State Fairgrounds).  Nationally known dealers from several states will have a wide variety of American-made glassware and pottery to show and sell.  The specific building where the show will be held is not known at this time because of construction at The Fairgrounds.  When the building location is known, information here and on social media will be updated to show the location.  Show hours will be the same as in prior years and are 10 am. to 5 pm. on Saturday and 11 am. to 3 pm. on Sunday.  Admission is $6 per person and is good for both days.  Parking is free if a show card is presented at the gate.

The attached photos show the variety of elegant, depression, EAPG, and other glassware that dealers bring to the show.  In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to hear a presentation on a glass topic at 1:00 pm on Saturday.  The specific topic has not been determined at this time, but it will be listed here once the topic is known.  There will also be a display of glass for attendees to view.  The display will consist of club members' collections which will include glassware from many different eras.

Although the show's focus is on glassware, dealers will also have pottery pieces by Shawnee, McCoy, Weller and other American potters. Foesta ware by Homer Laughlin China Company is always well represented at the show.
