The elegant "Tubman Lantern" Wine Glasses were handpainted by one of the Eastern Shore's gifted African-American artist. One short stem wine glass has a handpainted scene featuring an old-fashioned oil lantern being held up as to light the pathway or to give an "All Clear" message for escaped slaves. The second long stem wine glass has a handpainted scene depicting Harriet Tubman as an Underground Railroad conductor guiding escaped slaves to freedom. The stemmed glasses are dishwasher safe.
While Harriet Tubman dare not carry a lantern, the lighted lantern has become to symbolize Tubman's legacy as an Underground Railroad conductor who guided escaped slaves to freedom. In addition, a lighted lantern in a certain place was used as an "All Clear" symbol to identify safe houses along the network of escape routes known as the "Underground Railroad" which was used by runaway slaves.
