Footnotes

  • John Orchard was the principal engraver of 'rock crystal' glass for Stevens and Williams, often using designs by Joseph Keller. The shape of the panels on this comport is similar to the 'Dragon' pattern, which relates to a Stevens and Williams bowl by John Orchard in Corning Museum of Glass (acc. no. 98.2.6).
