Here is an eye-catching cane bottom pink Depression Glass two handled bowl in the cheerful #734 Sunshine pattern by Lancaster Glass. Lancaster made glass of a slightly better quality than much of the glassware of the Depression Era, and this bowl looks and feels like more elegant glass. The Sunshine pattern has an optic made up of intersecting lines that crisscross each other at angles creating an effect that truly sparkles in the sunlight. The sloped sides of this octagon shaped bowl bend the light in multiple directions and the bottom of the bowl is patterned like the cane seat of a chair. The applied open handles are each made up of two scrolls of glass that are joined in the center with a three lobed medallion.
This pretty bowl measures 6 inches in diameter, 7-1/2 across the handles, and 2 inches deep.
This pattern was made by Lancaster circa 1932. It is not marked.
Three of the eight sides have a condition commonly referred to as "inner rim roughness," a series of tiny chips along the inside rim usually caused by stacking. The underside of the fancy handle at the three small lobes has also been chipped. This is not sharp and can be difficult to see, though it is easily felt. These do not detract from this beautiful, sometimes elusive, bowl. The condition is reflected in the price.
