Rare Victorian Glass Display Dome - Very Large

Offered is this Rare size Victorian Glass Display Dome.

When you see this dome in person, you first notice the immense, impressive size. The overall height of the dome is about 20-1/2", and more than 15"W.

Obviously made for a large object, such as a doll or taxidermy. The glass dome is in excellent condition, with no cracks or chips. The glass could use some further cleaning, and all we did was wipe the dust off with window cleaner.

The wooden base is quite massive too, and has a deep recess where the dome sits. The glass sits on a lip at the inside top of the base. The base has 4 wood feet. The interior of the base has the original cloth, which needs a little tack around the edge in a couple spots, but is otherwise in fair shape. You can see a separation or crack in the wood, but it's not all the way to the bottom of the base, and does not present any issue that we see.

It looks as though you could easily fit a 19" tall doll inside, perhaps even 20". (we used a 2-Liter bottle of soda in the pics to illustrate size)

The glass measures about 15-1/2"H x 15-3/4"W. The base measures 21-1/4"W x 5"H and has a recessed bottom which is 15-1/4"W x 4-1/2"D.

You will be hard pressed to find a dome of this size, more than 100 years old, and with the original base.

Due to the double boxed size, shipping can be to the Continental USA only. Will be expertly packed for safe delivery.
