An example of the Empress Line from the Tiffin Glass Museum of Ohio. The museum will exhibit during the Three Rivers Depression Era Glass Society’s March show and sale in New Kensington.

The Three Rivers Depression Era Glass Society will feature regional and tri-state area glass/pottery dealers in its 42nd annual show and sale, set for March 2-3 at the Quality Inn in New Kensington, 300 Tarentum Bridge Road.

Included will be American glassware from the 1880s to Art Deco to the Depression Era, mid-century modern and glass from the ’50s and ’60s and pottery, planners say.

This year’s special exhibit focuses on Tiffin Glass made in Tiffin, Ohio, and locally in Glassport as part of the United States Glass Co.

Tiffin later absorbed Duncan and Miller in Washington, Pa., eventually closing in 1980.

Those attending will learn about the glass produced beginning in 1889, when A.J. Beatty and Sons built the factory and moved from Steubenville, Ohio, to Tiffin.

Show times are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. March 2 and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. March 3.

Admission is $7 from 10 a.m.-noon on March 2, $5 noon-5 p.m. and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. March 3, free to those under 30 with valid ID.

Free glass identification will be available with admission from noon-2 p.m. March 3, two items per person.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
