About this artwork

This unusually colored glass was perhaps part of a set belonging to the family of George Dummer, who founded the Jersey Glass Company. Alternatively, it is also possible that this glass is European, likely Danish. The United States continued to import a great deal of European glass throughout the 19th century. In fact, the Dummers started out as resellers of imported glass, and it is conceivable that they continued to sell European glass alongside wares of their own manufacture.
