Web Description: 
The Museum recently acquired two pieces attributed to the famous Boston & Sandwich Glass Company of Sandwich, Massachusetts, including a blown creamer, with an unusual “beehive” shape formed by a skillful blower. It is rare to be able to attribute a piece of free-blown glass to Sandwich. Although the Museum has an extensive collection of pressed Sandwich glass, there are relatively few blown pieces from Sandwich in the collection
