Mid-Century Modern Art Glass Bowl with Billiken in Center
Thick, Heavy Amber Glass Bowl, hand blown or free form shape, weighs nearly 3 pounds! It has a free-form edge, with bubbles and straw mark in the glass. Billiken is Pressed in Relief into the Glass at the center.
Excellent Condition with No chips or cracks. 7½" diameter and about 2" high. I have Never Seen Another!
Billiken was created in 1908 by American Florence Pretz, an Art Teacher who reportedly, created the image from a dream. Billiken quickly became a national craze, commonly known as a token of Good Luck, and was marketed as dolls, figurines, banks, and other novelties.
