About: Rosie Narasaki

Well, you’ve gathered that I’m an intern at the Getty, but what else am I? I’m a freelance writer, a ghostwriter (though unfortunately, not Ghost Rider), and an excellent whistler, among other things. I was born and raised in California, and I self-designed a major in Creative Writing for Performance (basically, playwriting with a fancier name) at Scripps College. In my spare time, I like to shop sales, rollerblade, eavesdrop on drunk people, and watch copious amounts of TV.

      Flat, clear vessels with broad areas of smooth glass were made in the 1500s to accommodate demand for enabled decoration.

      This is over a foot tall, and was made to hold beer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was also shared on festive occasions, and noted humanist Erasmus gives this advice to his readers in On Good Manners for Boys:

      "Chew your food before you drink and do not raise the cup to your lips without first wiping them with a napkin or cloth, especially if someone offers you his cup when drinking from a common cup."

      Wise man.
