Cut glass" is glass that has been decorated entirely by hand by use of rotating wheels. Cuts are made in an otherwise completely smooth surface of the glass by artisans holding and moving the piece against various sized metal or stone wheels, to produce a predetermined pleasing pattern. Cutting may be combined with other decorative techniques, but "cut glass" usually refers to a glass object that has been decorated entirely by cutting.

The Brilliant Cut Glass era in American extended from 1876 -1917. First introduced by eight enterprising American companies at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia.

This beautiful brilliant cut glass oval pickle/relish bowl circa 1900-1910, has a combination of intricate cut designs including five-pointed star, pentagon, Bethlehem star, sheafs of grain and zipper cuts on a heavy blank with saw-tooth and crimped edge. The pickle/relish bowl measures 7" in length, 4 1/4" in width and 2" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Unsigned as to maker.
