This heavy crystal glass is in excellent condition; clear, bright and cloudless; with no signs of wear and tear. There are very few glass bubbles, a soup of the process of making raw glass from those early days. It is an 8 1/2' high statuesque and the magnificent upper slope bowl is a wide 11 diameter. This beautiful bell shape piece of more than 110 years features a large beaded bulls eye and striped design falling to a gorgeous cane background style. Thick glass has a scolloped upper double edge.
The immaculate 6-inch-high pedestal features a 12-point rounded column base rising to a beautiful cane and diamond ring. This beautiful precocious compote is a very rare and perfect piece for a centerpiece or a dining room buffet. It can be filled with fruit, flowers, greenery or simply self-contained.
When the light hits this beautiful old piece of glass, it will completely illuminate a room. It was found in a corner closet in my aunt nellie's old house in kentucky. Please ask questions and thank you for looking.
