A heavy clear molded glass octagonal serving dish with an elegant swan gliding amongst water plants.
The heavy, flinty, sharp edged, eight sided clear glass dish has a molded design of a swan, cattail and a blooming lily in the central well that was produced during the Aesthetic Movement period. The sides have a stippled glass with clear rounded cabochons as a design. The base has a shallow foot and the indentations of the design from the molding. The glass is old with bubbles and line waves.
9” (22.9 cm) long x 5 ½” (14.0 cm) wide x 1 3/8” (3.4 cm) tall. Weighs 1 lb 7.2 oz (660 g)
There are tiny nicks on the mouth rim and base edges. These are very tiny. You feel them more than you see them. There are no other chips, cracks, or breaks. There are manufacture flaws, such as bubbles in the glass and wavy lines. There is some slight wear to the central well.
A beautiful serving dish that shows the Victorian love of the luxury and elegance of the swan motif.
