This is one sweet little cordial! The bowl is made of ruby glass which has been embellished with gold and enameled flowers. On two sides, pink “cabochons” look as though they are set in gold prongs. We believe the cabochons are porcelain although they could be glass. The gold prongs are painted on. The gracefully shaped stem and base are clear glass which have been coated in gold. The base is also decorated with three dimensional pink, blue and white enameled flowers and three round pink “gems”. We believe this dates to the early 1900s.
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: 4” tall with a diameter at the rim and base of just under 1 1/2”.
CONDITION: The condition of this little beauty is excellent. There are a couple of small spots where the gold is slightly discolored, but otherwise the gold is completely intact and glows richly. The enameling is also completely intact. We are not sure whether the round “gems” on the base had painted prongs, although one does appear to have two. If this started out with more prongs, they are no longer there.
