This large mid century blue optic glass piece with circus tent lid is a fabulous dramatic piece with a 5 1/8" diameter round foot, making it very stable, and a 3 3/4" wide circus tent lid. The entire piece stands 12 1/2" tall and is 7" across at it's widest point and is in excellent condition with no damage of any type. You can feel the optic pattern mainly on the inside but also some on the outside. This piece is not marked. Mid century optic glass of this type is often of Italian or European origin and was very popular during the late 50's and early 60's. The foot and stem are blown separately and then attached to the body. I find the ball shape just above the foot on the stem to be a nice touch not often seen. Take a look at the matching but smaller blue optic glass apothecary jar which is also listed in my shop. The two together would make a stunning pair. If you are interested in purchasing both, a discount will be applied.
