This wine glass was used by Robert Burns and his family during the time they lived in Burns House, Dumfries. Relics of Robert Burns, Jean Armour Burns and their household were treasured and preserved. This glass is engraved, ' Relic of Robert Burns Presented By Mrs. Crawford To James F Lyon Alloa 27th May 1896'. Jean Armour Burns continued to live in the family home following the poet's death in 1796. She remained there for the rest of her life and by the time of her own death in 1834, the house had become a place of pilgrimage.
