These amazing glasses celebrate the non-water fowl game birds hunted with pointing breeds, flushing spaniels, and retrievers. This glass set was first produced in 1937 featuring the work of international wildlife artist Richard E. Bishop. Mr. Bishop was the original artist for the Federal Duck Stamp program introduced in 1936.

The colored etchings on the glasses feature a Pheasant, Quail, Turkey, and Grouse

Born in Syracuse, New York in 1887, Richard E. Bishop was a noted painter, etcher, and writer.  He graduated from Cornell University and continued his studies at the Graphic Sketch Club in New York City. In 1924, his Canada Geese was awarded the Charles Lea Prize from the Philadelphia Print Club.

Bishop's paintings and prints may be found in the Honolulu Art Museum, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

An artist internationally known for his wildlife prints, Bishop illustrated the book Prairie Wings by Edgar Queeney and, in 1936, published Bishop's Birds. 
He was the original artist for the prestigious Federal Duck Stamp program at its inaugural in 1936.

The artist died in 1975 at the age of 87.
