New-York Historical is temporarily closed to help contain the spread of COVID-19. On August 14, we're opening Hope Wanted: New York City Under Quarantine, a free, outdoor exhibition in our rear courtyard. See more details on our Visit page.
Colorless non-lead blown glass wine glass; bucket-shaped bowl with tear-shaped air bubble in base joined by multiple-knopped stem to conical base with folded-under rim and pontil mark; bowl engraved with three floral sprays.
Though a related document was mentioned in the original computer record, no such document was located as of 8/98. Despite the fact that the wine glass appears, superficially, to date to the eighteenth century, the unusual, multi-knopped stem and lack of wear suggest a later date of manufacture.
Bequest of Mrs. F. MacDonald Sinclair (Jennie H. Sinclair)
