What a supremely elegant cut glass cordial this is. We believe this is European, probably made in the first part of the 1900s. It is unmarked. The base is cut in a star with so many points it looks more like a flower. The tall stem has five sides; each edge is scalloped. When you look through the stem at the opposite side, the cut design looks like twisted glass. The bowl was faced in a subtle medium blue and then cut to clear.
This comes from the estate of Phil’s mom, who was a passionate collector of American Brilliant cut glass and other fine art glass.
SIZE: This glass is just under 5 1/2" tall. The base has a diameter of 2 1/8”, and the diameter at the top is 1 3/4".
CONDITION: This lovely cordial is in very good condition, although there are a few flaws in the glass itself which occurred during manufacture. There is a tiny dark spot at the top which, under strong magnification, appears to be a group of tiny bubbles. There are a couple of lines inside the glass where the stem meets the bowl. There are no chips, scratches or cracks.
