Mary Rhinelander Stewart (1859-1949) was the daughter of Lispenard Stewart and Mary Rogers Rhinelander. In 1883 she married Frank Spencer Witherbee (1852-1917) and these pitchers were a gift from her maternal aunt, Julia Rhinelander (d.1890), who herself never married. Julia lived at no. 14 Washington Square North, with other family members in the adjacent mansions.
Mary passed them on in turn to her nephew, William Rhinelander Stewart Jr. (1885-1945) a close friend of Vincent Astor and a prominent member of New York’s café society.
