DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — The suburban Detroit history attraction The Henry Ford has acquired a studio glass collection that includes about 300 pieces.

Officials announced Tuesday that the donation from Bruce and Ann Bachmann of Chicago is an encyclopedic history of the Studio Glass Movement, which began in the 1960s.

Patricia Mooradian, president of The Henry Ford, says the acquisition "undeniably furthers the importance and significance" of The Henry Ford's glass collection.

The Henry Ford in Dearborn includes Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. Fundraising is under way for a glass gallery as part of Greenfield Village.
