Drawing, Designs for Drinking Vessels, Covered Dishes, and Candle Holders
This drawing of eight vessels is carefully composed to illustrate that the pieces are intended as a set and to provide comparative scale. Ranging from water glasses to finger bowls and candlesticks, the striking and softly angular glass set would have been a focal point on a dinner table. This drawing may have been produced in conjunction with a custom order placed by Miss Agnes Miles Carpenter.
