This is an antique Victorian 19th century petite 12 inch oval blown glass dome display with its original base.Including the base, it measures 12 inches tall (30.5 cm)The dome itself measures 10 1/2 inches tall by 7 1/2 inches wide by 4 7/8 inches wide (26.7 cm by 19 cm x 12.4 cm)The base itself measures 9 inches wide by 6 1/4 inches wide and is 1 3/4 inches tall (22.9 cm x 15.9 cm x 4.5 cm)This great old piece can be used for a clock, statue, taxidermy, doll, flowers or just your favorite object.It has wavy glass and many bubbles, typical for early blown glass.The glass is in excellent condition.Unfortunately, the wood base is missing the red liner that would sit in the base opening to hold the glass in snug. So it moves around while on the base and could use another piece of fabric to hold it in.There is some light wear to the black base, commensurate with its age.It weighs 2 lbs. 1 oz. (946 g)These old oval domes are getting hard to find!
