This art glass bowl was created by Perthshire Paperweights of Crieff, Scotland. The bowl was created in the style of Vasart / Ysart and Monart glass. Perthshire did not make a large amount of this type of glass being much better known for their paperweight creations. It was made in the early 1990s.The bowl features a top band of mottled blue with swirled and pulled pieces of multi colored pieces between the primarily white bottom two thirds. Contained within the glass are swirls reminiscent of those found in Monet's "Starry Night".
The bowl measures 7" (17.8 cm) in diameter and it stands 4-1/8" (10.5 cm) tall. It does show one small piece of ash or debris that shows in the base which is shown in several photos but is enlarged in photo 11. The piece is in excellent condition without chips, flea bites, scratches, or staining.
This appears to have always been hand washed if it was used. It is marked with the Perthshire impress "P" on the base in a somewhat imprecise manner in the center of the pontil scar area as shown.
