The Ohio Glass Museum in Lancaster, Ohio is now displaying a portion of Lois Ford’s eyecup collection in their current exhibition until March 8th. Lois, and her husband Doc, were longtime members of the Ohio Bottle Club. Lois collected eyewash cups since 1968. Her collection had wonderful colors, sizes, and shapes. And of course, several “go withs”- eyewash bottles, jars, advertising cards… A bit of everything was donated to the museum. The current exhibition is called “Bed, Bath and Boudoir.”
Standing outside the Ohio Glass Museum can be deceptive. It appears to be small from the outside and is quite a surprise when inside. It is a beautiful museum- professionally built and professionally lighted oak display cases from floor to ceiling. It does have somewhat limited hours- 1-4:00 Tuesday through Saturday through February. It is definitely worth visiting when in the area. There are also interesting stores and restaurants within walking distance.
