Alice Evans submitted this follow-up report on her research on her family's 1892 Liberty Seated Coin glass sauce dish. Thanks!
It has taken me several months to send a thank you, but I wanted to be sure to pass on my appreciation for your information helping me to research the 1892 Seated Liberty Coin glass dish I gave my grandson for his high school graduation.
The progression of my research is as follows.
With the initial information you provided about the 1892 Seated Liberty glass piece I presented it to my grandson with the conclusion that although it represented a very interesting piece of World's Fair history, I could not say if it was an original or a copy. However I still felt it was a nice piece of his great grandfathers glass collection to pass on.
The day after the graduation party, I got your email that forwarded Mr Bailey's comments stating that as far as he knows there were no copies of this glass. This meant to me that the glass was likely an original, but where did it come from?
Then remembered that in a journal written (in Norwegian) by my grandson's gt gt gt grandfather, Christopher Evans where he mentioned he attended the Chicago fair not once but twice and brought home souvenirs. For me that completed the provenance of this piece as it directly connected the Evans' family members who passed on this gift.
It first came to Christopher's grandson, Rudie, a collector of antique and collectable American glass and eventually to his son, my husband, Robert. This is the glass piece, passed down 4 generations, that was given to our grandson, Anders Conroy for his high school graduation. He is attending business college at Des Paul University in Chicago and was so pleased to have this gift of history from both Chicago and his family. I wanted to pass on the conclusion of my research along with many thanks for your help. I was thrilled to put these last pieces together and could not have without your and Mr Taylor's help.
At Alice's request, I also forwarded this thank you to Don Bailey.
Great story! We're glad to help, and thanks for sharing the outcome.
