Curator Pick of the Month

Title: "Bohemian" Wine Glass
Artist: Unknown (1817-1878)
Creation Date: late 19th century
Origin: Czechoslovakia
Medium: Glass, gilding, enamel

Bringing to mind the new blooms of spring, this 19th century “Bohemian” wine glass is decorated with pink lustre, gilding and polychrome enamels. When used in reference to glass, “Bohemian” is often used to describe 19th-century faceted, engraved, and bright colored vessels that were produced in the regions of Bohemia and Silesia, now parts of the Czech Republic. The glass, along with 7 others like it, was donated to The Drexel Collection by Mrs. Albert J. Nesbitt in 1963.

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.
