A large (top width: 14 inches, height: 6 1/2 inches), amethyst-colored, centerpiece bowl with a folded-down rim, made by Pairpoint during the early part of the 20th century. Ground pontil (see picture). Unsigned. The bowl has been examined under black-light: it fluoresces in a very gentle greenish color, typical of late 19th or early 20th century soda-lime glass; also, there are no cracks in the bowl. Also, when tapped lightly, the bowl has the tonal quality of a bell and rings for a long time, typical of Pairpoint glass objects. Except for a two-inch-long scratch below the rim (see last picture - the scratch can be felt with the finger-tip), the bowl is in very good condition - no chips, cracks or repairs.
