Cranberry Glass Collection, 19th century

Collection of free-blown glasses dubbed cranberry, adorned with white, rococo style figures hand-painted by British artist Mary Gregory. This collection was bequeathed to the Society in 1992 by Maurice Lemay, a renowned antique dealer and collector of the Sherbrooke area. Most of the articles on display are known as the Mary Gregory Pieces and were made by the famous Boston & Sandwich Glass Company, an important glass manufacturer located in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The rich cranberry colour was achieved by the addition of gold oxide to the molten glass. The term cranberry glass refers to the colour and not to a specific type of glass.
