This is a late 19th century Bohemian large footed amberina glass centerpiece bowl or vase. The age is circa 1880.

The bowl is large and weighs about 4 ½ pounds. It is approximately 8" high, 9 1/8" long and 9 5/8" wide.

The front is crimped down lower than the back.

The glass is red at the top and amber at the bottom. There are wavy lines in the glass, swirling tighter at the bottom and wider at the top. The mouth has an applied amber edge trail.

The inside of the mouth has hand painted enameled vines and leaves. On the back is a round silver (or white gold) circle with a gold enameled bird partially over the circle. The front of the piece has more gold enameled foliage. There is rubbing wear to the enamel paint, and this can be seen most visibly on the front decoration, and the silver circle, with little bits of rubbing elsewhere. At one time there was gold dusted on the glass and it is still partially visible when held to the light.

The feet are amber glass. The tops of the feet are the faces or heads of lions, which are separate pieces of glass set against the body above the foot leg. The feet have had some polishing on them over the years to smooth out the nicks caused by handling and moving.

There are no nicks, chips or cracks.

The pontil is round and ground smooth, with a circular rough impression in the center where the pontil was snapped off by the glass maker.

There are bubbles in the glass.
