An antique Victorian glass pedestal compote featuring a double row of stars on the skirt. We also see a row of blocks with starred centers. The pedestal is decorated with the same stars as the skirted bowl. The rim flares out every so slightly telling us this was made as an open compote.
This pattern is aptly named Starred Block and was manufactured by Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton. This particular pattern dates to c. 1888.
Measuring 8 inches in diameter and 8 3/8 inches tall we do not find chips or cracks and only one point that feels rough to the touch. There are the typical bubbles and one straw mark to the interior base of the bowl. This is off to the side and goes unnoticed. Just a lovely piece of Victorian glass.
