Bowl w/gold trim and monogram: PTB
Overall: 3 x 5 3/8 in. ( 7.6 x 13.7 cm )
Opaline blown glass bowl; flared rim edged in gilding and initials "PTB" in gilding on side of bowl.
According to the accession records, this bowl was once part of a set owned by P. T. Barnum (1810-1891), great-grandfather of the donor. The bowls and tumblers in this set were apparently used for mouth-rinsing after a meal.
