Early in the 20th century these beautiful art glass examples with the colorful florals were produced for the upscale market. This unsigned four footed bowl or card tray exhibits beautiful purple irises with the foliage colored in a two-tone gold wash. This gold covers the rim in an unusual pattern as well as the feet.The iris blooms are somewhat raised as if a thick glaze was painted and then refired on the bowl. The back side is covered in a chipped ice effect which has been dipped in acid to create a matte finish.
The bowl measures 9 1/2 long, 7 wide and 3 1/4 tall at the highest point on the rim. The bowl is in excellent condition with only one pinhead fleck visible on the rim, no other chips, cracks, damage or repairs. I will also mention on the rim there are assorted areas as pictured where the gold appears to have been applied over some factory rough areas. I do not believe this to be areas of repair because all the gold is a uniform color. Several spots on the feet also show this affect.
This in no way detracts from the beauty or value of this wonderful work of art. Under the chipped ice layer in the center of the 4 feet a ground pontil can be viewed. Please view all pictures as they are considered part of the description. Please check back to my listings often as I will be posting numerous fine examples of glass, pottery and porcelain in the near future.
