What’s in a name?
The number “1876” comes from the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence being signed, and the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial.
The designs originated from the 1825 company, Boston & Sandwich Glass Works which operated in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
The Avon 1876 Cape Cod Glass Collection drew its inspiration from the Roman Rosette classical pattern.
