Satin Glass derives its name from the items' velvety matt finish which is achieved though 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 art glass items.
This lovely piece of Victorian art glass is circa 1880 - 1900. The color is a soft white satin finish from which the round form curves into nine gentle scallops around the top edge. It may have been made as such or it could be that the outer colored layer and/or additional decoration was never applied, Either way it is unique, lovely and rare. It stands 3 3/8" tall and 3 1/2" across. Hand blown with a nice pontil. There are no cracks, chips, nicks or repairs.
