THE KAPLAN COLLECTION You can share a piece of Heights history. From the 1920's until
January of 2006 Kaplan's-Ben Hur served the residents of Houston as a department store providing everything from baby blankets to Tiffany lamps. Through the generosity of Martin Kaplan and Rex Bass, fused glass artist Mark Roland was the fortunate recipient of a portion of the original glass shelving which once held these items. That shelving, complete with scratches and imperfections from decades of use, has been recycled into useful plates, bowls, and platters for a unique memory of a Houston classic.
