End of Day glassware was made from leftover glass and it’s impossible to find two that are exactly the same. When the glassmakers’ days were over he would gather the chips of colored glass remaining from the day’s work, heat it ,and blow the glass into a bowl, dish or what-ever. Sometimes translucent glass was layered over the bowl which created a pretty, durable, and unique piece. The technique goes back to the Romans and was called splashed glass! In modern times (1880 to 1900's) End Of Day glass was made in England, Germany, and Bohemia. The technique is still used today to create beautiful, one of a kind, glassware.
This bowl was manufactured to be "End of Day" glass. No two are alike, but it was a production piece, not made at the end of the day, but made to be sold at the higher end stores. It's very pretty, and the enamel decoration was hand applied. It has a small base which is about 3/8 ths of an inch deep and 4 inches in diameter. The bowl is in great shape, and has a tiny amount of table wear, but it could easily pass for new.
