Satin glass derives its name from the items' velvety finish achieved through the application of an acid bath. This procedure has been used by many companies since the late 1800's, both here and abroad, on many types of colored and art glass items.
This lovely Victorian rose bowl, circa 1880 - 1900, is a medium yellow shading to a very light creamy yellow near the base; the interior is white. It is decorated with flowing orange enamel scrolls and rose blossoms with delicate tan branches and leaves tinged with gilt. The egg-shaped bowl stands 5 1/4" high and 4 1/4" across the base and 1 3/4" across the top crimped top. Hand-blown with a nice pontil. There are no cracks, chips, nicks, repairs; one small dark manufacturing imperfection near the base. (see photos)
