This compote is amber with varying shades of amber. The bowl is lighter than the stem which is dark amber. The compote is a product of Strombergshyttan Smoland Sweden. It was made c. 1935. There are 6 flower medallions set against a background of fine cut. The flowers are somewhat abstract. This pattern was also made in blue and possibly other colors.
This is a large 9" x 8.75 inch open compote with a finecut background. The fine cut pattern decreases in size toward the bottom of the bowl. There are round medallions with various types of flowers, leaves, and butterflies. There are fuschias, tulips, and mums on the medallions. The top of the compote has a scalloped edge between the medallions. Above the medallions, the top is smooth. The center of the compote is clear with rays. The mold lines are hidden on the pattern on the bowl. The bowl is 4.75 inches deep.
The stem is 6 sided. It is narrow at the top and has a medium wafer knob. Three inches from the bottom the bowl the stem has 6 large knobs which form a band above the top of the domed foot. The foot is 4.75 inches across. The knobs are 2 inches from the stem to the foot which is a wide bell shape. The mold lines on the stem band have a deign similar to an arrow which extends above and below the large button knobs.
