Nice, unusual tall pedestal bowl with great Art Deco geometric design on the metal work. The pressed glass bowl is original to the piece. Stands 8 1/4" tall with a top diameter of 9". The hexagonal foot is 2 3/4" on each side and 5 1/2" across. Marked: MADE IN FRANCE DEPOSE No. 31. The base was originally silverplated but the plating on the base has worn to a warm pewter finish after about 90 years of cleaning. On the pedestal itself the plating is still present (albeit a bit worn) as it is on the bottom. The overall effect is quite nice: it shows it's age in an attractive manner. No damage to glass or metal. No dents or cracks. The inner rosette is original to the piece with its stylized swirl. Could be used as a centerpiece or as a decorative item. Nice example of Art Deco design, probably dates to circa 1930.
