The Boston and Sandwich Glass Company was incorporated in 1826 to hold the glass factory built a year earlier in Sandwich, Massachusetts, by Deming Jarves. The factory was closed in 1888 amid disputes with a newly formed glass-makers' labor union.

This stunning Victorian tomato glass console bowl by Boston & Sandwich Glass Company, circa 1880's, is composed of two layers of cased glass, tomato or orange-red color over yellow with an applied clear top edge. The square top transforms into a circular shape at the bottom and rests on a 7/16" raised collar base. It is gorgeous as a console bowl, but would look fantastic on a silver-plated pedestal transforming it into a brides basket. The bowl measures 9 1/4" across the top, 4" in height and 5 1/4" across the raised collar base. Nice ground pontil and bell-tone ring when gently tapped. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.

I have seen several examples of this glass attributed to the Stevens & Williams Glass Company in various basket forms.
