Abp American Brilliant Cut Glass Libbey "melrose" Tray 12x4x2.3 6lb Raised Sides:
THANK YOU FOR VISITING.CLEAN GLASS DEPOTA SITE DEVOTED TO AMERICAN BRILLIANT PERIOD CUT GLASS AND...WE ALSO HAVE PORCELAIN ANTIQUESAMERICAN, EUROPEAN AND ASIAN.We cure sick glass. Please YOU FOR YOUR VISIT
We are delighted to present to you for considerationa Libbey Cut Glass Company pattern always sought and in demand.It is a splendid example of superb craftsmanship.The pattern, "Melrose".We are presenting it today in a crimped, raised-sided tray;its dimensions, 12 inches in length and 4 inches in width , narrow,due to the turned in "crimped" styling.The height about 2 1/2 inches, at its highest.
Handcrafted completely during the American Brilliant Period,(1870-1916)the wonderful blank is mouth blown, white water and phosphoresceslime green under black light.It is a thick blank, 1/2 inch thick. The tray weighs over 5 pounds.(Measurements rounded.)
We found the tray to be in fine condition:We examined it in normal lighting and in a display mode.We found no major chips, cracks,repairs, nor anydiscoloration.The tooth profile was complete.Under magnification, the possibility that a scatteringof micros might be discovered.Normaland expected in this glass, over 100 years of age.
With regard to quality: Assured fine quality on the basis ofmaker, attributed to Libbey - reputation for excellence, always.Additionally:All requirements for excellence have been well met:There is itsprodigious capacity to disperse light and ultimately produce the appearance of vivid colors in sunlight.AND.....The bowl exhibits both pattern balance and symmetry.The resonance, sonorous and lingering.
Please note that the narrative written in describing a patternmay become overly complicated and so our twofold description isthat of a narrative summary with details supplied in the photographs.Additionally the photographs and the accuracy of thecamera eye make it more feasible that the photos become the final wordwith regard to condition, quality and all herein described.
The motif criteria.The rim has been crafted with the pattern included.There are hobstars and fans crafted directly into thesaw tooth and scalloped rim.It might be referred to as partial fan scallop design.We wish to point out:The valley teeth have been cut in a unique manner -they have been flattened. They are not chipped.In the pattern, the rim and area below it are handcrafted withhobstars alternating with a the fans above the diamond set hobstars,co-joined to the nailhead below; star enhanced; repeating four times.
But it is the center that is the "Star" of the design.In the tray one needs to carefully study the layout because,in a brilliantly designed manner, there is what might be called a mirage.The well known "Melrose" hobstar; its size and surroundingsnormally easily determined are not so in this tray.Perhaps it is a Libbey slight variation of their own pattern.The many miters employed in the construct of the congruent figurein which the star-type hobstar lies makes this determination difficult.It is more easily seen on the underside.There is an illustration in "Reflections", not naming the pattern,but featuring it on Page 236.
With that, thank you, please review the equally important photographsand feel free to ask questions.
