For those of you who love brilliant crystal and detailed copper-wheel engraving, this bowl is for you. The heavy crystal clear blank is expertly engraved with groups and single aster-like floral with delicate fern-like leaves completely surrounding the bowl. Connecting the floral is a wide band of narrow vertical lines bordered on the top and bottom by small oval dots. There is a large engraved flower in the base of the bowl and each of the gracefully curled handles are etched with a column of four-pedal leaves. The craftsmanship closely resembles that of glass houses like Hawkes, Libby and Pairpoint; the blank could be a Steuben product.
The bowl measures 8 5/8" across and 2 3/8" in depth. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; the only thing missing is a makers signature.
