Anna’s Glass

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on February 19, 2020

This example is a popular commemorative glass from the Victorian Era with the date of 1899, and the city Asbury Park (NJ), and name. There are many glasses like this with different places, dates, and names. This one is not an important glass but is very special to me because my Grandfather William Theadore Crane at the age of 23 gave it to his new bride Anna on their honeymoon in Asbury Park.

H: 3 ½ inches

D: 1899


Asbury Park is located on New Jersey’s central coast. Developed in 1871 as a residential resort.  At the date on the glass this was the place to be with beaches, a merry-go-round which is still there and working.
