Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Cup Plate
Artist: Boston and Sandwich Glass Company
Creation Date: c. 1840
Origin: Sandwich, MA, United States
Medium: Pressed glass

This pressed glass cup plate was most likely manufactured by the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company in Sandwich, Massachusetts in the mid – 18th century. Glass pressing was invented around the 1820’s and with the help of the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company, the method was perfected to eliminate surface imperfections in the 1850’s. This plate contains stippling, often called Lacy glass, or tiny dots added to the glass during the cooling process to distract the viewer from any surface imperfections, indicating its date to be around the 1830’s – 1840’s. Brilliant cut glass was made popular during the Centennial Exhibition of 1876 in Philadelphia.

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.
