Offered for sale is one of the nicest examples of Victorian cranberry glass I've seen in a while. My thought is that it was made inan American factory--perhaps New England Glass or one of the fine English glasshouses(any help appreciated).This pieceis a sweetmeat dish that fits in a silverplated stand.The cranberry glass is decorated with a floral motif on each of the ten rim scallops. The dish a made to fit the stand perfectly. It does not sit upright alone. The pedestal stand has two figural handles with stylized Phoenix birds. The cup has a raised rib design and a band of acanthus leaves at the edge of the base. This piece measures 6 1/2" high overall, 8" across at the handles and 3" at the base. There are no markings on the silver. The dish alone is 2 3/4" high and 4 3/4" across. Both theglass and stand are in very good estate condition with nodamage, wearor restoration found. Really an exceptional pieceand sure to be welcome in any collection! The cost of U.S. insured shipping and very careful packingvaries with your postal zone--see estimate above.
