Notes & Condition Report
The Liberty Bowl honoured ninety-two members of the Massachusetts House of Representatives who refused to rescind a letter sent
throughout the colonies protesting the Townshend Acts (1767), which taxed tea, paper, glass, and other commodities imported from England.
This act of civil disobedience by the "Glorious Ninety-Two" was a major step leading to the American Revolution.
The bowl was commissioned by fifteen members of the Sons of Liberty, a secret, revolutionary organization to which Revere belonged;
their names are engraved on the bowl as are references to Englishman John Wilkes, whose writing in defence of liberty inspired American patriots

The Liberty Bowl, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution have been called the nation's three most cherished historical treasures.
The Museum of Fine Arts Boston purchased the bowl in 1949, with funds that included seven hundred donations by Boston schoolchildren and the public.
