Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Glass Bottle of George Washington
Artist: Unknown
Creation Date: Mid-20th century
Origin: United States
Medium: Glass

Happy Birthday George Washington! In honor of President’s Day this month, The Drexel Collection chose a glass bottle molded after George Washington. In the decades after the birth of the nation, the production of glass bottles decorated with celebrated American figures was common. Also called flasks, these historical glass bottles are distinctly American, and are popular among collectors because of their unique place in the cultural heritage of the nation. Figural bottles like this were produced in many shades of amber and also in blue.

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.
