This is a beautiful set of little shallow cut glass bowls that are generally referred to as a berry bowls. In the center of each bowl there is an acid mark signature. There is a “R” flanked by lions over a triangle with the name Birks. I believe the first is the mark for the glass house of Roden Brothers of Toronto Canada and the second mark it that of The House of Birks, apparently a fine jewelry store or company that distributed glassware in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. It is a beautiful and busy pattern with stars and crosshatching which shows well and catches the light beautifully. The rim of the bowls are scalloped sawtooth cut. These would turn a scoop of vanilla ice cream or lemon sherbet into an eloquent dessert!
I believe these are 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.
They measure about 5” in diameter and 1 ¼” at the highest peak. They are in very nice condition with light wear. There are a few small nicks or chips to some of the teeth on each bowl but none of the bowls are cracked or are badly damaged. They condition has been taken into consideration in the price.
Priced and sold as the set of (6) six.
