This beautifully crafted bowl was made in early 1800s Great Britain, most likely as a compote for holding stewed or preserved fruit. Made from lead glass see the very noticeable dark grey tone to the glass. When pinged it rings out sublimely. The bowl is profusely decorated in English Hobnail pattern with the inclusion of three roundels, each hand wheel engraved with a floral arrangement. The foot is equally decorative in thick, thick lead glass with a pretty chamfered and vertically fluted foot. The foot/ base is very thick just like the lemon squeezer foot on glasses of this period.
Measuring 3.5" by 5.25" diameter, foot diameter 3 1/8". Weighing a heavy 16 oz or 1 lb in weight!!
Condition is very good - As one would expect their are small air holes and inclusions in this 200 year old glass. There are no cracks, chips or nibbles to the body. There is one teeny ( 1/16" ) edge flea to the foot/ base underside and obvious surface signs of wear to this underside ( to be expected).
