FACTS & HISTORY: Why is it called a Revere Bowl?
In 1768, Samuel Adams and James Otis drafted a resolution in the Massachusetts Assembly that was eventually adopted by the other 13 colonial assemblies. The resolution called out parliament because it did not directly represent the colonies, since colonists were not allowed to vote for representatives.
The Royal Secretary of the Colonies called in the Royal Governor of Massachusetts and asked him to dissolve the elected assembly. He refused that order. Instead, he put the matter to a vote, where it came out 92 to 17 against overturning the resolution.
To commemorate the 92 votes in favor of the resolution, Paul Revere, who was a silversmith by trade (and a member of the Sons of Liberty, a patriotic drinking society) was commissioned by that organization to create a silver rum punch bowl to be made of 45 ounces of silver and to hold 45 gills of rum.Called the Liberty Bowl, Revere engraved the names of the Sons of Liberty members who voted against rescinding the resolution and added the numbers 45 and 92 to the bowl. The design was inspired by commemorative porcelain bowls made in China.
Eventually, the design received the name “Revere bowl.” The original Liberty Bowl remains in the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston.
