Here is a lovely find..... An old cranberry glass bowl decorated with enamel flowers and gold trim around the top rim and around the base. The floral decoration is done with very thick enamel paint and features a stem of flowers in difference stages of development. There is an unopened pale yellow blossom, then an open yellow blossom of the same flower, and a few that are just starting to appear. I do not know the name of this flower, it sort of looks like a poppy. A spray of crisp white, lily of the valley adorns the back side, at least that is what they appear to be to me. This lovely cranberry glass has a nice thickness, not real thin and has several little tiny bubbles, typical in antique glass. I would date this around the early 1900s. The base looks like it has a smoothed and polished pontil but I am not certain. I think this is a vase, I have seen this shape referred to as a "rose bowl". But it could be the bottom of an old dresser powder or trinket jar that is missing the lid. But there are no chips around the rim to indicate constant removal and replacing of a lid... that you often see on older glass containers.
It measures 3" tall by 4 1/2" across the opening by just under 3" across the base.

This lovely art glass piece is in wonderful condition with no wear to the enamel flowers and only a tiny bit of light wear here and there to the gold trim. The bowl has no chips, cracks or repairs.
This is gorgeous and in that wonderful color that is so collectible. Beautiful display piece to add to your cranberry glass collection.
