22K Gold overlay has been abundantly applied on this unusual shaped dish.
The composition of the glass is textured and mottled on the underneath side.
When held up to the light, the images that show thru are distorted, due to the texturing. This is a great effect. The topside of the bowl is embellished with gold, gold and more gold.
A band of gold trims the edges.
Graceful patterns of swirled arched designs go around the entire bowl. This is followed by another gold band.
To top it off, a large stunning starburst or sunburst design is centered on the bottom of the bowl.
Corners are ever so gently rounded so that they appear square, yet they are not sharp to the touch. Glass is a good eighth of an inch thick and pretty sturdy.
Condition is very good. There are no chips or cracks. As you can see, this was pretty well taken care of. The gold is in great shape and really shines a lot. Very little wear to be sure.
This really looks terrific when placed upon a table. I photographed it in a stand to better show how the glass looks. The pictures really do not show this as well as I would like them to.
