Following Dutch custom, tall beakers made for domestic use in colonial New York were often donated by their owners to local churches. This beaker is engraved with a Dutch inscription that translates as “Given as a token of devotion and loyalty to the Church in Kingston 1683.” A second beaker, made around 1711, is similarly inscribed. Each is engraved with representations of Hope, Faith, and Charity.
