An American brilliant cut glass hair receiver featuring a ribbed top. The base is flared in the center with deep cut areas that surround a pinwheel decoration. Each has a cut star in the center. The top has deep cut areas that form ribbing and the base has a 16 point star.
The period for this would be the late 1880s or 1890s. Most likely part of a multi piece dresser set when first purchase.
Measuring 4 inches high and 14.5inches in circumference around the base. We have pictured a few tiny areas with nips in the glass. We felt for these rather than saw them with the naked eye. All in all in wonderful antique condition.
