L. E. Smith # 50 Tea Room Tumbler - Footed tumbler is cobalt blue with gold trim. Height 6 inches; diameter 2-3/4 inches. Smith's No. 50 line was made in black, blue, wistaria, and crystal. The inventories list No. 50 beer mugs, footed goblets, pilsners, schooners, and tea rooms (in both 7 oz. and 8 oz. sizes).
This may be one of my favorite quilts. It is inspired by a beer carton (for our grocery challenge, see blogposts here). I revised the harbor to be Camden and the schooner to be the Louis B French. The miniature storm at sea is mostly from a John Flynn quilt kit, with the small square in a square finishing at (EEEK) 1 1/8". At least when I pieced them accurately! Finished size is 20 1/2" square.
