Presenting a wonderful clear Depression glass float bowl base made by Libochovice of Czechoslovakia. This float bowl base has a wonderful design.
An almost pulled feather pattern repeats around the bowl six times graduating in size as it descends towards the centre. A lined frosted ribbed like pattern appears in between each of the feather design also graduating in size towards the base. The light flaring of the bowl absolutely works with the design as through the graduating of the pattern it really draws the eye to the centre where a frog figure is housed. The geometrics of this bowl truly show the style and flare of the Art Deco period perfectly. BOWL - Measures an impressive 33cm in diameter and stands 10cm.
Penguin Centrepiece Stands around 21.5 cm. There is a chip/slither to the underside and small nibbles to the inside at the very base please see photos. A tiny tiny rough spot to the edge of the wing, possibly from manufacture.
There are three air bubbles present which is typical of this style of glass. Presented with no chips, cracks or repairs. There are scratches to the surface of the bowl from age and use as would be expected for a piece around 90 years old. The polished rim on the underside foot of the base shows wear marks from years of being moved and sliding across surfaces.
This is a very good sign though as it aids in authenticating the age. I have also included a picture of this. Please refer to my detailed photographs that complete the description.
