The bowl has a lovely pattern around the rim of the bowl and is dark clear amber colour. The bowl measures 35.5 cms (14 inches) in diameter with the foot measuring 13.5 cms (5.5 inches) across. The bowl is 9 cms (3.5 inches) tall. The black stand that the bowl sits on has three feet on the bottom and it is in excellent condition.There are no chips, cracks or repairs on the stand. The black stand measures 18 cms (7 inches) in diameter. The stand sits 4.5 cms (1.75 inches) tall. The four large birds have a few small flakes on the birds and some flakes on the beaks. Usually these brids have broken tails and broken wings but theses are in good condition for their age.
The amber birds are 9 cms (3.5 inches) long and the birds with their wings spread are also 9 cms (3.5 inches) across. The pegs on the birds and the holes they sit in are hexagonal so you can face the birds in six different directions, facing into the bowl as in the photos or in other five directions. These float bowls are getting extremely rare and when you do see them most of them are damaged with broken wings or tails. So this float bowl is in good condition for it's age and as good as you are likely to find. It would be ideal for any collector that likes rare pieces of glass in good condition.I have tried to take the best photos I can but for this type of glass it is hard to get photos that really do justice to the beauty of this float bowl. I always double box and wrap any bowls I send really well because I know what it is like to receive broken bowls that haven't been wrapped properly.
