The New Martinsville Glass Company, 1901-1944, was founded in New Martinsville, WV. At the beginning the company relied upon pressed glass for the majority of its income. Very soon thereafter, Joseph Webb, son of Thomas Webb of England, developed a line called "Muranese" also referred to as "Peachblow", which had a shiny, slightly iridescent exterior finish shading from a golden yellow to salmon pink interior and deep rose pink exterior.

This lovely piece of "Muranese" glass is in the form of a ruffled dish or mini brides basket insert. Starting as a flat, round form on a raised collar base, two sides were curved upward and pinched inward to create this wonderful piece. The ribbed body transforms into a delicate ruffled outer border. The piece measures 6" in length, 4 3/4" in width and 2" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; a slight flaw consisting of a small extra spot of glass toward the outer edge (see photo). Wonderful example of a hand-to-find type of American Art Glass.
