The Leddell Chalice is an adaptation of an 18th century chalice made by Joseph Leddell, Sr. of New York City, circa 1740s. The original is taller, with an unusually large cup. We scaled the cup down somewhat and the proportions now seem right.

I’m pretty sure my father’s inspiration for this project was seeing a photo of an original example from the New Haven Colony Historical Society which is engraved on the cup with the words, “Drink ye All Of This” and dated 1744!
