Design for a Silver Cup

Mary G. Houston


The accompanying text states, "Designed expressly for "The Studio"

Other work by same designer

"The . . . cup designed by Miss Houston has . . . [an] austere form and attractiveness. The strongest of its good points will be found when most modern cups are very weak — i.e. in the foot. There are defects, it is true, the surface being somewhat 'tight,' and the waves suggested on the lid rather small in treatment; and many will think that the sail held by the little figure blows away from the rest of the design to the injury of the essential close union of all the parts. But these blemishes are matters of detail, and could easily be remedied. — The Studio, p. 44.
