According to those who knew her best, Bessie Morse Bellingrath “hated liquor worse than God hates sin.” And yet her collection includes a wide variety of beautiful objects created to serve or contain everything from gin to champagne. Displayed throughout the home are case glass decanters, Sheffield wine coolers, a ceramic book disguising a liquor flask and assorted glassware designed to serve an array of wines and liqueurs. Join Tom McGehee as we take a look at these alcohol-related treasures within a teetotaler’s collection.
