Welcome to the home of the Carnival Glass Society (UK)
Visit our Spectacular Exhibition of Carnival Glass
from the Anthony and Maureen Ward Collection
at the Amazing ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh’ House
1 February to 28 April 2019
In 1916, when famous artist and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh remodelled 78 Derngate for its new owner, famous model maker Wenman Joseph Bassett-Lowke, carnival glass was at the height of its popularity. Look out for items in this magnificent display that reflect Mackintosh’s designs including stylised flowers and striking geometric lines.
