We love this kiln formed glass coaster. With its likeness of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg screen printed with black enamel onto wispy clear-white glass, it was fused in a kiln to about 1400 degrees. The coaster has clear bumpers on the bottom to protect your surfaces. A great addition to your happy hour accessories, it is a wonderful memento of a beloved American.
To become the first female Jewish Supreme Court Justice, the unsinkable Ruth Bader Ginsburg had to overcome countless injustices. Growing up in Brooklyn in the 1930s and '40s, Ginsburg was discouraged from working by her father, who thought a woman's place was in the home. Regardless, she went to Cornell University, where men outnumbered women four to one. There, she met her husband, Martin Ginsburg, and found her calling as a lawyer. Despite discrimination against Jews, females, and working mothers, Ginsburg went on to become Columbia Law School's first tenured female professor, a judge for the US Court of Appeals, and finally, a Supreme Court Justice.
