The image depcited on this glass is a bit of a mystery. The male appears to be dressed in a costume of some sort, with different designs along the midline. He's gestureing at an object of some kind - a box of Maple Dew? There's a handle - is it a seat?

In 1892, the company was being supplied by the Pleasure Ridge Park distillery of Kentucky's 5th district: see the distillery listing for more details.

Brand names used by this company include: "Defern", "Idalia", "Kentucky's Old Reserve", "Little More", "M. C. Kinyon", and "Maple Dew."
