Texas Yellow Rose Celebrates American Brilliant Glass

We invite all ACGA members to plan their 2020 summer vacations to include the annual convention to be held at the Dallas/Rockwall Hilton on July 15-18, 2020, for the largest annual sale of American Brilliant Period Cut Glass. Convention attendees, besides enjoying Texas southern hospitality, will find eight wonderful speakers (two old favorites you haven’t seen since Corning), outstanding meals, an abundance of educational opportunities, wonderful fellowship with friends we only enjoy once a year, and of course, the fabulous Dealer Show!

FIRST TIMERS: If you are attending our convention for the first time, we will make you extremely welcome! Your convention experience starts at 5 pm on Tuesday! Howard Blair gives a one-hour presentation just for you on “All Things Convention” which will explain to you all the details of the upcoming four day convention. There will be a printed program showing you all of the activities to include morning speakers, afternoon dealer show, collector’s night, and numerous breakout sessions with specific topics of interest for the beginning or advanced collector! If you want to have a “cut glass experience” our convention is a must attend! It is a REALLY BIG SHOW!

The Dealer Show will feature the largest and most experienced cut glass dealers in the country! Each is bringing several hundred pieces of fine American Brilliant Period cut glass, especially selected to interest Convention attendees. Whether you're looking for special rarities or beautiful cabinet pieces, you are sure to find something that will enhance your collection.
