This Mid Century Modern ruby red art glass bowl was made by Viking Glass as part of their Epic line from the early 1960s. It measures 10 inches diameter by 4 inches high and has six deep petals at the rim along with a 6-petal flower shape base. The bottom center of the bowl is lighter in color, almost red-orange, as is typical of Viking's ruby colored glass.

There is a 1-1/4 inch smooth to the touch straw mark from manufacture in the bottom of the bowl that may be mistaken for a scratch at first sight. There are no chips or damage, but the bowl was once used to hold a plant or flowers apparently, as there is faint interior water line below the petal separations. It's noticeable only when held to the light at a certain angle and I didn't try to remove it. There are many online methods such as vinegar, baking soda, even toothpaste but I didn't want to risk causing scratches or finish loss. White spots in the photos are from reflections and glare.
