CELEBRATING OVER 40 YEARS OF THE NATIONAL CAPITAL HEISEY COLLECTORS CLUB

 

In April, 1972, collector and antique dealer, Orva Huissenbuttel, placed an ad in the “Mid-Atlantic Antique Journal”, asking anyone interested in forming a Heisey glass club in the Washington, D.C. area to contact the address given.  Postcards were mailed to respondents to attend a get-together on June 7, 1972, and the National Capital Heisey Collectors Club was launched.

Bylaws were accepted and, from the beginning, it was acknowledged the club would have a variety of purposes, including the sharing of information on Heisey glass, both to members of the club and to the general public, and the encouragement of its collection and preservation as American-made glassware.  The NCHCC has always supported the national club, Heisey Collectors of America (HCA), in one of their goals to establish a National Heisey Museum in Newark, Ohio.

To this end, club founders undertook a most unusual and ambitious task when they decided to sponsor the first All-Heisey Glass Show and Sale on March 3, 1973.  The glass display, as well as the dealer’s expertise, introduced and educated attendees to a wide variety of quality, antique Heisey glassware.   The National Heisey Museum became a realty not only showcasing Heisey, but with a library and displays that allow the visitor to learn about the making and history of this fine glass.

After moving our show around the Maryland and Virginia suburbs, we are proud to be presenting our  annual All Heisey Glass Show and Sale in March, at the Annandale Volunteer Fire Department social hall  located at 7128 Columbia Pike, Annandale, Va.

We invite you to come see the display, talk with dealers and members to learn about Heisey glass, and buy that wonderful piece of Heisey to enhance your home.
