It is with great excitement that the Millersburg Glass Association, Inc. announces that the Millersburg glass collection of Karen Engel will be up for bid at our fall auction in Millersburg, Ohio on Saturday October 7, 2017. The auction will be held under the tent on the courthouse lawn and will also include 200+ items from the Randy and Bo Jones collection.
You will want to secure your hotel reservations now because this is one of Millersburg and Holmes County’s busiest weekends and they fill up fast.
Contact the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau for local hotels.
Don’t forget that your membership to our club also includes the Friday Night Gathering, which may be held on the courthouse lawn as well. Details are still being ironed out on that.
There are a lot of things to do in Holmes County, so plan to come in a day or two before or stay a couple of days after the auction and Antique Festival Parade.
In June of 2012, nine collectors met at a Holmes County, Ohio residence and ironed out the details to create a club so they could share their appreciation of beautiful glass made by the defunct Millersburg Glass Company, which operated in Millersburg, Ohio for a short time (1908-1911.) The club now boasts a membership that spans the United States and Canada.
Each fall, in conjunction with the Holmes County Antique Festival, the MGA (Millersburg Glass Association) conducts its Fall Gathering. The Gathering includes a “Meet and Greet” for members on Friday evening and on Saturday everyone is invited to an auction of exclusively Millersburg Glass. The attendance has grown each year and the auctions are always packed with fabulous glass. If you are a collector or just enjoy the glass, I encourage you to join the association and share the experience.
Whether you are a current member or just visiting, I want to thank you and hope you enjoy the website.
