Libbey celebrates 200 years

  Anniversary

Founded two centuries ago, Libbey Inc. will be holding special events in May to celebrate this important anniversary and its milestones during these years such as the development of machine-blown glass in 1907 and the first one-piece press and blow stemware process in 1970.

Libbey plans to host an invitation-only event the evening of 4 May, which will include a Toledo Symphony Orchestra performance, cocktails, and a video about the company, Mrs. Burt said.

Libbey House at 2008 Scottwood Ave., and shopping spree incentives at the Libbey Glass Factory Outlet, 205 S. Erie St.
In conjunction with the celebration, the art museum in late April will open an exhibition of Libbey glass featuring both con...
