Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Punch Bowl
Artist: Artist Unknown
Creation Date: Late 19th Century
Origin: England
Medium: Sterling silver

For January, this punch bowl is an appropriate choice as we welcome the New Year. In 19th century England, where this bowl was made, punch was the celebratory drink of choice. Many countries shared this tradition, incorporating the drink into all types of festivities, holidays, and events. By the 19th century, British punches recipes no longer followed strict measurement, although there was a strong preference for sweet and rich flavors. While ingredients and making methods varied across the globe, punch was always recognized as a celebratory drink. p>

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
