Glass in the Reves Collection

There are over 200 glass objects in the Reves Collection. The majority of these pieces are Spanish and likely come from the La Granja factory. Wendy Reves was especially interested in the medium and acquired much glass while traveling in Spain during the 1960s and early 1970s. Examples of central European and French glass, including the cruet set, were purchased from Philippe Leroux in Paris in the 1960s. In 1971, the large French candlestick was acquired from Joseph & Earle D. Vandekar in London. Some of the rarest English glass, such as the sweetmeat dish with looped rim and the engraved covered goblet, came from Cecil Davis, Ltd., in 1969.
