The height of the glass bowl is approx. The pewter shell measures approx. 7 3/4 in diameter at the slightly flared rim. The height of the pewter shell is approx. From handle to handle is approximately 10.
Glass Liner / Bowl The glass bowl is original and looks very fine for its age. There are no chips, cracks or obscene scratches. The color is not to light and not to dark, just a nice medium green with the pontil mark on the bottom.It does appear that the glass bowl did sit outside the pewter shell at some point in its life. There is a very faint partial ring on the bottom. Although, it's not a complete ring.... I would say about 1/3 of a complete ring (see pic). The ring is not really noticeable when it's in the shell. There are no bubbles in the glass to the naked eye. Outside Pewter Shell The pewter shell looks beautiful. There are no major dings. There are some areas that show some light hairlines / wear. The inside is extremely clean with very little to no wear at all. The bottom shows some ring wear (see pic).
Most of the hairlines / wear that this shell has are in the bottom half of the piece (mostly on the bottom). The upper floral art work around the piece looks excellent. If one were to polish this piece, I believe 95% of the hairlines would disappear. (I'm not the polishing type) The stamps on the bottom read: TUDRIC RD426933 (the D is underlined) 0320 6 Overall, this is a very beautiful, heavy duty piece. It is definitely one of the nicer pieces in the Tudric line in my opinion.
