This early and beautiful, very heavy footed sawtooth green cut glass navette shaped dish stands 4-1/2" high on a rayed hexagonal base that measures 3-5/8" diameter at widest part of base. Tiny cut notches decorate each edge of the short octagonal 1" column flaring out and edging the thumbprints at the base of the bowl. Reflections of light off the cut edges of the sawtooth design explode into lovely green fireworks. This uniquely shaped bowl measures 6-1/2" in width x 4" in depth at the center, narrowing almost to a point at either end. The cut rim at top is finished with small inverted scallops. There is much wear along the underside of the bottom as well as a flea bite towards the point of one of the hexagons (shown in the picture by the arrow). Tiny nick does not show when sitting on the table or mantel. The geometric design is very elegant on this Irish or English cut glass from the 1850s-1875. There is a melodic ring to the glass. Red candies would look smashing in the bowl during Christmas, and green ones on St. Patrick's Day - a very versatile dish! Thank you for visiting. Please email me if I can help you in any way.
