Photographing Glass: Revisiting the Morgan Cup 30 Years On
I recently had the opportunity to photograph one of my favorite pieces from our collection, the Morgan Cup (52.1.93), which is a beautiful example of Roman cameo glass. The cup was once in the collection of J. Pierpont Morgan, from whom it got its name, and was given to The Corning Museum of Glass in 1952 by Arthur A. Houghton, Jr. For more information on the Morgan Cup, read this detailed history by David Whitehouse, former director of the Museum.
