Description

This classic reproduction by Reed & Barton is patterned after an original hand-crafted by Paul Revere in 1768. The original “Liberty Bowl” was engraved with the names of 15 members of the Sons of Liberty who commissioned it. It celebrated the “Glorious Ninety-Two”, a vote of 92 to 17 in the Massachusetts Assembly to disobey the King’s order and “not rescind” a letter produced and circulated among the colonies by that assembly. The letter was a protest against the British Ministry and suggested a united front against their policy of “taxation without representation.” The original “Liberty Bowl” can be seen at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The reproduction is 6 1/2″ in diameter and 3 1/4″ high and is available in silver plate. Please note: this reproduction does not include engraved names of the 15 Sons of Liberty.
