This is an English art glass footed bowl. The glass is cranberry, or pale ruby red. The date is the 19th century, circa 1885.
The bowl is 5 ¼” high, and the width is 10” by 9 ½”.
The feet are made of clear glass and are a rustic stub foot pattern.
The rim is pincered and a clear pincered trail is around the rim. The edge of the clear trail shows the remnants of a painted gold trim, mostly worn away from age.
The inside has hand enameled flowers on long stems and smaller blue forget-me-not flowers. There is one flying insect or bee and one small lady bug.
There are some tiny glass bubbles in the glass, common to glass from this time period.
The clear glass feet feel rough at the tips, and so there may be old nicks or chips, but hard to tell due to the pattern of the glass. These types are flaws are understandable given the age of the glass. There are no cracks, just the roughness at the base of each foot.
The pontil is round and polished smooth.
