|Object Name||Cup, Coffee|
This cup is from a service that was probably made for Mary Rogers, the widow of Richard Rogers. They had married in 1731, and he died in 1757. She lived until 1782.
She is most likely the "Mary Rogers of Gloucester, widow" who requested in her 1780 will that her heart be taken out "by one of the faculty" and then replaced, presumably for research purposes.
