Beautiful French glass from Portieux Vallerysthal! One of their best know patterns, Chimera depicts the mythical birds among classical scrolls against a stippled background. This covered candy dish or compote is heavy pressed glass with the pattern in clear relief--outstanding! Scalloped rim and foot and a large melon finial atop the lid completes the look of this antique piece, which measures 8 1/2" tall to the top of the finial, while the compote's diameter is 6 1/4". It's in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
