A beautiful art deco display bowl in peach / pink pressed glass. Signed Czechoslovakia. Although not signed, it is Stolzle made glassware.
Clear glass columns with scrolled edges alternate with lightly etched curtains for a frost-like finish. Inside of bowl is completely smooth. The frost-effect appear to have been made by a slight grinding of the outside of the curtain sections. This may once have been the bottom piece of a two-piece glass centerpiece as the maker did many such sets.
Condition issues: there is a small scratch on the flat inside bowl area, which also has some light swirling scratches similar to dinnerware that has been cleaned with a harsh scrubber. One foot has a small chip and there are a couple of smooth scratches on the frosted area.
Size: 10 1/2" diameter scroll to scroll, 9 1/4" diameter on the smooth edges. App 3" tall.
