This is a very pretty small dish, made around the turn of the last century, during the golden years of American Brilliant Cut Glass. We believe it is a spoon tray, although it may be a small relish dish. It has an interesting shape, in that the sides are higher than the ends. It is an oblong. It features two large hobstars on each end, and two smaller ones on the sides. Triangles with diamond cuts grace the bottom, and fans are used between the hobstars. The cuts are very nicely done. The rim is scalloped. We have not found a signature, and have not been able to identify the maker.
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: 7 3/8” by 3 1/8”
CONDITION: This lovely dish is in very good condition. There are a few tiny nicks on some of the points on the rim and one flake chip on the inside of a scallop. Otherwise, we see no chips or cracks.
