Triphena Punch Bowl
This punch bowl wishes “Success to the Triphena,” a merchant ship that made frequent trips between Philadelphia and Liverpool, England, in the 1760s. Americans celebrated the benefits of British trade by drinking and toasting with bowls like this. In 1765, the Triphena carried an appeal from Philadelphia merchants to merchants in Liverpool requesting their help in lobbying the British Parliament to repeal the Stamp Act. Archaeologists found this punch bowl in 2014 on the site of what is now the Museum of the American Revolution.
