Cape Cod Day 6… Sandwich Glass Museum oddities.

 

Day 6 found us in getting a late start in Sandwich.

At a museum filled with glass.

For 62 years beginning in 1825, Deming Jarvis’s glass factory put this little Massachusetts town on the map.

The history of glass was on display…

And some of it was fascinating.

Parts of the museum are interactive…

And we timed it just right to witness a glass blowing demonstration…

Which I thought I’d videoed, but apparently didn’t.

Either way, the chandelier hanging overhead was impressive. Though I’d hate to have to dust it.

Glass..

Glass.

And more glass.

Well, what did you expect…

 

 

Yes!

Chickens!

Lots…

And lots of glass chickens.

Clearly they knew I was coming.

They were salts…

And paperweights…

Art glass…

And breast pipes.

 

 

Yes.

There was even a bosom shell….

Which I’m sure was very comfortable.

There was also a lily foot shoe..

And the chance to have dinner with a dead man.

Who could pass that up?

  1. Actually the boob cup was very comfortable because then you didn’t have to walk around with a wet pad in your bra.

    Or a wet bra.

    Or a wet shirt.

    Big round spots on the front of your blouse.

    ugh.

    Like

  2. I am so glad my motherhood spigots rested in silicone and flannel “cups”. I’m far too clumsy for glass, would impale myself, would wound bebe. Anyway, I hope to visit this place. I dig it.
