This beautiful shallow bowl is an old piece of cut glass that is generally referred to as a master berry bowl. In the center it is signed with an acid mark of a triangle with the name Birks. This mark was used by The House of Birks, apparently a fine jewelry store or company that distributed glassware in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. I cannot see any other mark to identify the glass company or the cutter. The rim of this bowl has a scalloped sawtooth edge. It is a beautiful and busy pattern which shows well.
I believe this piece is from the late 1880’s to the early 1900’s, the period considered the Brilliant Age or ABP but in this case since it appears to be from Canada it is CBP Canadian Brilliant Period.
It measures about 8” in diameter and 1 7/8” at its highest peak. It is in very nice condition with light wear. There are two teeth that are definitely chipped as I have shown in the photos and there is a bit of roughness on a few others. There are a few small nicks but there are no cracks or other damage.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
