About this artwork

The American glass industry began in the Northeast, but it migrated to the Midwest as people moved westward during the early 19th century. Cleveland connoisseurs Dr. George and Alice Perry Follansbee, important early collectors of American glass, once owned this bowl. They undoubtedly delighted in the irregularity and large size of this handmade, freely blown vessel.
