This exquisite vintage dish is the most dazzling shade of shining ebony black.
The cast glass is quite substantial; the base alone weighs almost thirteen ounces. The lid tapers slightly upward and culminates with a large finial.
The lid rests deep within the dish so that the lip of the base juts out.
There are some visible seams, though this is typical of some cast glass items. Despite one or two minor and uncompromising cracks (more like fissures) on the base, the dish remains in good vintage condition.
We are unable to determine the maker on this piece, but we love the black glass and also the shape, size, and the lid design.
Perfect for a desk or dressing table, this piece adds the right amount of drama and elegance.
