Offered here is a Green Depression Glass Handled Custard Cup in the seldom seen Bowknot pattern. A pretty bow with trailing ribbons connects beaded swags around the cup. An intricate bouquet medallion is centered on each swag. The bottom of the cup has a six-pointed medallion motif. With only seven known pieces to this pattern, there is no saucer on record. Custard was very popular during the Depression Era, and cups were often produced without saucers for serving this delicious dessert.
Two cups are offered here. Each cup measures 2-5/8 inches high and 3-1/4 inches in diameter with another inch for the handle.
There is no mark. According to Gene Florence's Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass, Nineteenth Edition, it is believed that Bowknot was made by Belmont during the late 1920's.
There is a 3/4-inch scratch inside one cup inside near the bottom of the handle. Due to the location,this is not very noticeable. There are no other condition issues.
