Description

This sauce dish is one of four identical objects. It features the Lincoln Drape, a pressed glass design with alternating semicircles and medallions. A teardrop pattern appears below the medallions. Supposedly the design featured on the glass is representative of the black crepe that adorned Abraham Lincoln's casket and hearse, although this theory cannot be corroborated.
