Dorothy K. Vallier is a very important friend of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Her generosity made Treehaven what it is today, and established the unique collection of American pressed glass goblets displayed in the Noel Fine Arts Center.
This Sunday May 30th marks her 100th birthday. Accordingly, on behalf of the University, I am naming May 30th "Dorothy K. Vallier" day at UWSP. UWSP is fortunate to be able to count Dory and her family among our friends.
The following brief YouTube video contains the proclamation as well as a few images of Dory at Treehaven and with some of the goblets.
We are proud to present the Dorothy and Jacque D. Vallier Early American Pressed Glass Goblet Collection. This truly amazing collection is comprised of over 1200 items assembled by the Valliers between 1969 and 1984.
Our online searchable collection contains beautiful photographs of the pieces with their pattern names and information about each one. You can search the collection, via pattern name, or keyword; visually browse; or view the 50 Favorites highlighted in the 1984 catalog by the same name.

It is a pleasure to share the Vallier Goblet Collection with our communities and with collectors everywhere. We hope you enjoy this online collection and we also invite you to visit the UW-Stevens Point campus to view the collection in person. Specially built display cases surrounding the Edna Carlsten Gallery house a significant number of the goblets in the collection. The gallery is located in the new Noel Fine Art Center.
