Hand Enameled Cobalt Venetian Glass Finger Bowl

Please see our blog, left, for the history of this charming design.

Created after the 15th Century "Barovier Wedding Cup," our Bowl measures 4-1/4" diameter at the rim, 2-3/8" tall, 2-3/8" base diameter.

The pontil is a 5-point punty mark which is usually an indication of a quite old piece, along with the corresponding rise of glass on the inside center. Unseen in the photos, but visible under magnification, is considerable wear at the point where the piece touches a surface. This wear also indicates some age to us. However, without information on the origin of this piece, we feel that we cannot claim this piece to be any older than early 20th Century, and leave any further speculation to the others.

Provenance: From the estate collection of a well-known Southwest Antiques Appraiser.

Condition is excellent with only wear to the base. $16 US Shipping.
