Dwight Lanmon begins by giving an overview of the Museum's new acquisitions. He then introduces Harry Fancy, former curator of the Whitehaven Museum in England who speaks about what Dwight Lanmon regards as "The one that got away." In 1985, Harry Fancy, curator of Whitehaven Museum, became aware that a Beilby goblet would be offered for sale and that The Corning Museum of Glass was in the process of bidding. Whitehaven was given a chance to acquire if they could raise the money Corning had offered. Whitehaven was successful and the goblet is currently on loan at The Corning Museum of Glass.
