Large crystal bowl in the Imperial pattern by renowned French glassmaker Val St Lambert. The silver-plate base is marked William Adams, Italy, a division of Towle. The bowl has a top diameter of 9 7/8" and stands 4 3/4" high. It's signed on the bottom as pictured. The bowl does not appear to have ever been used as there are no scratches to the glass or dents/damage to the silver. When running my finger around the outer rim, I do detect 2 extremely minor small pinpricks, probably a result of bumping up against something in a cabinet. Please look at the last photo and you can barely see a tiny slight indentation in the rim. Perfect to use as a centerpiece, this bowl would be lovely with a flower arrangement or make a great salad or vegetable bowl.
As with most lead crystal, this is a heavy piece, weighing 4 lbs before packing. Shipping will be via FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery, insurance included.
