Description: FREE-BLOWN AND ENGRAVED TAPER TUMBLER, colorless with a decided gray cast, engraved with a hare flanked by flowers and leaves on front, "benedict / burger / 1751" on reverse, double band of wavy lines below rim, rough pontil mark. Together with a copy of the Wistarburgh Glassworks booklet referenced below. Possibly Casper and Richard Wistar's Wistarburgh Glassworks, New Jersey.

The source of the Corning tumbler was Elizabeth Morris Wistar (d. 1993).

Provenance: From the personal collection of Kenneth Lyon.

Dimensions: 4" H, 3 1/4" D rim.
