This footed/pedestal Sea Shell compote was made by Cambridge Glass Company, ca. 1940s-1950s, in their Crown Tuscan color which is a slightly translucent, pink milk glass color.
The decorating firm of AWCO (Abels, Wasserberg & Company of New York) produced the hand-painted Charleton line of decorations. This particular Charleton pattern is known as Charleton Harbor and Roses. It has a gold initial on the underside of the base. There is some paint wear--most noticeably in the gold trim.
It stands approximately 3" tall in front and rises to about 4 3/8" tall in back. The widest part of the shell is 7 1/2" in diameter.
There are no chips, cracks, or repairs.
