The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park takes a look at antique table appointments with the exhibition “A Brilliant Setting—American Cut and Pressed Glass Tableware, 1876-1917.” Set up as a modern-day dining room adorned with period examples such as vases, trays, and punch bowls, the show provides a range of designs, from the luxurious pieces used by the wealthy to the modest imitations made for the masses. The exhibition opened last October and remains on display through September 27.
