This is a beautiful piece of American Brilliant cut glass from the late 1800s. It features a complex star pattern, made of bisected triangles. This is embellished with hobstars, small diamond cut triangles and fans. The two handles have ovals cut into them. We have not been able to identify the manufacturer, but this is a beautiful piece with precise, intricate cuts. It appears to have been a quality piece when it was made.
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: Diameter of the bowl at the top is 8”. Length from handle to handle is 11”, and the bowl is 2 1/4" high at the top of the fans.
CONDITION: There are some flake chips on a few of the high spots. We see five that are about 5-6mm in length and 3 or 4mm wide, and a few smaller ones. Some of these can be seen from the top. We felt that this is such a beautiful and unusual bowl, that even with the chips it is worth displaying. Our price reflects the damage as well as the original quality of this piece.
