Mary Gregory (1856–1908) was an American glass painter at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company in Cape Cod, Massachusetts who helped popularize glass-painting.

Victorian children

She was particularly well-known for her paintings of Victorian Era children, and such artwork has been referred to as Mary Gregory since the 1920s. However, it was shown that such artworks were actually from an earlier era, and the term was likely the result of marketing by the Westmoreland Glass Company. The glass most likely came from Bohemia, England, or Italy. Despite this, many glass art enthusiasts continue to refer to such pieces as Mary Gregory.
