SILVER VAS E AND SLOP BOWLS FROM BALTIMORE, MD.
Copyrighted.
On each side of the table may be seen two large etched hurricane glasses, as they were called : these were used to place over lighted candles to prevent them
from  being extinguished by a draught of air.  They are to be found more in the South than in the North.  Some are very finely etched but the
plain ones were more commonly used.
