4 ANTIQUE ELEGANT MOSER RUBY CABOCHON GOLD FILIGREE FINGER BOWLS & UNDERPLATES. Thank you for coming in to look at my auctions. I have taken the last few months off to not only write a new 489 page novel, "Hiding In The Hills", but to also collect those especially rare and wonderful items which are becoming harder to find and of great beauty.
PLEASE NOTE: I sell antique, and sometimes vintage items. I try to find any and all condition problems, if they exist - BUT - should I miss something and not put it into the condition description, then please let me know ASAP and I'll do my best to make things right for you! No two items weigh the same, or are of similar sizes.
Please take a moment to visit my websites and blogs at outstandingantiques on wordpress, and enchantedenvironments, also on wordpress. I have somewhat changed my business model. This makes me happy to offer buyers the most interesting things, each with a fascinating background. So when I list things and say they are RARE, HARD TO FIND, UNUSUAL, and so on, you can be sure that's exactly what they are! I love to find exceptional pieces of Moser glass, but I wait until I can acquire something really special and outstandingly beautiful.
I bought this set of 4 finger bowls or ice cream bowls, etc. With matching underplates last year, from an estate sale of the family of the original owners. These were literally the only pieces of Moser I bought all year long. They are stunning, with rich, ripe, ruby red rounded edge cabochons outlined in gold paint, and hand painted filigree designs in gold and orange raised enamel paint. Each piece - bowl and plate - has an acid etched design, and I believe there is a large S in the center, although it could pass for a swirly design on its own.The under plates have softly scalloped rims, while the bowls have a continuous rim with a wide band of gold paint. They are unsigned, but there's no mistaking the classic Moser highly polished pontil on the bottoms of the bowls. The plates have hand cut stars into the crystal, with the upper lines outlined in gold paint. They are exquisite and exceptional, and perfect for any occasion, or to make even the simplest of meals memorable! Bowl first, under plates second: 2 ¼" and 1" high. 4 ¼" and 6 3/8" across the top. 4 pounds 1 ounce on my Dymo scale. Most inset designs on the underplates are missing gold. All underplate rim edges have VERY tiny niks to the under sides of the rim edges. Hard to see without a magnifier. Found them with my fingers and used a magnifier to see them. Probably from stacking over the century of use. ANY BLURRING IS FROM LIGHTS AND NOT LOSSES.
