An antique glass compote that features a frosted crouching lion on the lid. This is narrow at top and bottom and flares out in the center where dish and lid meet. We see a cable pattern on lid and pedestal base.
Manufactured by Richards & Hartley and dates to c. 1880s. This is the Lion & Cable #525 pattern also known as Crouching Lion and Tiny Lion.
Measuring 9 1/2 inches to the top of lion finial, we find this to be in wonderful antique condition with just a small nip off of the underside of the lid.
