The Museum purchased the ewer in 1985, and decided that year to call it "The Corning Ewer". The name was perhaps chosen because the Corning Ewer has a close parallel, the Buckley Ewer. The latter is in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Should one wish to read more about the Corning Ewer, there are 3 pages about it in athe 2001 exhibition catalog "The Glass of the Sultans".
