24jul10:30 am11:30 amCheers: A Look at Alcohol-Related Objects in the Bellingrath Collection, with Tom McGehee

Event Details

According to those who knew her best, Bessie Morse Bellingrath “hated liquor worse than God hates sin.” And yet, her collection includes a wide variety of beautiful objects created to serve or contain everything from gin to champagne. Displayed throughout the Home are case glass decanters, Sheffield wine coolers, a ceramic book disguising a liquor flask and assorted glassware designed to serve an array of wines and liqueurs. Join Museum Home Director Tom McGehee as we take a look at these alcohol-related treasures within a teetotaler’s collection.

The event is part of the Wonderful Wednesdays series at Bellingrath in June and July. Visit bellingrath.org to view the full schedule; call 251-459-8864 to register.
