This American brilliant period cut glass dish is in a basket form. The handle is formed by twisting two rods of glass together, and applying the ends to the sides of the base. The cut design is hobstars, buzz-stars, and central square; dish has a scalloped sawtooth edge.
No maker's mark I can find. American, ca. 1900
Size: Bowl approximately 9" diameter, 2" high, height with handle approximately 7.5"
Condition: One chip under end of one handle (what photographs as a heat crack in end of handle is air trap from the braided handle). No other chips, cracks or repairs.
While I carefully examine my items for flaws before listing, cut glass almost always has minor spots of roughness or nicks due to the nature of its design. Anything significant or visually noticeable is described, but it is always safest to assume that these items are not likely to be found as they left the factory. While returns are never a problem, if you have a particular concern, please let me know and I will re-examine the item.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
