Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - GLASS#3

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

It's June and this month I will be featuring artwork that depicts something summery.

“Morning Glory Chandelier”

By MANUFACTURER- J. & L. Lobmeyr (Austrian, 1823-present)
Chandelier dated 1850-1860

I absolutely love this chandelier.  I have grown morning glories for many years now and this chandelier really does depict the wild meandering characteristics of the featured flower.

This glass masterpiece was not created by one artist in particular but rather a manufacturer.
