Gallery of Glass and Ceramics

The historic Sawyer Library is home to the Museum’s collection of beautiful and delicate glass and ceramics. This decorative arts showroom features brilliant lit oak display cabinets that showcase varied examples of 19th and 20th century American and European designs. A portion of the gallery is dedicated to Mr. Frederick Schattschneider Durow, a long-time museum enthusiast and avid collector of Germanic and Bohemian glassware. Mr. Durow bequested his entire estate to the Oshkosh Public Museum in 2009 to support the preservation and interpretation of decorative arts. Visit the gallery and you too may find a new appreciation for the timeless design in these artistic works.
