|Children’s Glass was very popular in the 1800’s and early
1900’s. These tiny glass sets were made for children and were miniature replicas of dishes used by adults. |
Blanche Largent collected children’s glass for more than forty years. She displayed her collection in her home, but always wanted
to share it with more people.
Blanche donated her extensive collection of
children’s glass to the Mayborn Museum in 2000.
This table set features the very rare Menagerie pattern. The completed set includes a butter dish in the shape of a turtle, a bear
sugar bowl, a fish spooner, and an owl creamer.
Visit Blanche’s collection in the Tea Room located in the Jeanes Discovery Center.
