Beautiful antique, from late 19th century cheese dome. This large clear crystal glass dome/lid is 8" high, 6" diameter at the opening. It sits on clear crystal glass plate, 10" in diameter, 1 1/4" deep. Both pieces are hand blown. While cheese plate decorated with lovely white flowers along the edge the dome lavishly embellished with gold, enameled flowers and clover leafs. The dainty pink flowers surrounded by clover leafs done on mate finish background. There are 2 gold bands with coralline glass zigzag design. Two pieces are in very good condition, considering the age. Plate shows wear to enamel but has no chips or crack. The dome - obviously shows wear to the gold, as it has tendency to go off first. The enamel work - flowers and leafs - are in great condition. The edge of the dome has a rough spots on inside edge, it is not visible, but can be found if run finger against it, otherwise it is fine antique piece. Please see pictures for details, they are part of my description.
