Until November 25, 2018, the ‘Musée du Verre’ in Conches is holding a major exhibition of Loetz glass, which is well worth a visit. Conches is in Normandy, about 50 km south of Rouen. The exhibition of rare Loetz vases is comprised mainly of pieces on loan from the Hentrich Glass Museum in the ‘Museum Kunst Palast’, Duesseldorf, Germany, but there are also beautiful pieces from private collections and a few gems from Conches’ permanent collection of Loetz vases. All told there are over one hundred Loetz items on display, including pieces of the highest quality from the turn of the twentieth century. If you able to visit, do take time to view the museum’s permanent collection too, comprising stained glass, modern glass and some French art nouveau.

Note: The Museum's hours and days of operation are Wednesday-Sunday 2-6pm.  There is an exhibition catalogue available at the museum or from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
