The 2014 archaeological excavation by urban archaeologist Rebecca Yamin prior to construction at the site of the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia yielded nearly 82,000 pieces of artifacts. Pieces of the “Success to the Triphena” punch bowl were found in a privy pit from what was an unlicensed tavern on Carter’s Alley during the 18th century. The Triphena was a merchant ship that sailed across the Atlantic in 1765 from Philadelphia carrying a message asking England to reconsider the Stamp Act.
Our Triphena Bowl is a 1:1 scale ceramic reproduction of a Museum Collection object. Dimensions: 8.75" x 3.5".
