This Peking glass bowl is a rare deep emerald green.
A heavy thick translucent green glass bowl. The bowl has a flat undulating rim to correspond with the seven lobed shape. The bowl’s foot is raised. The edge has a ground smooth edge. The bowl was blown into a mold but there are no mold marks. A number of bubbles and dimples are visible in the glass. The glass shines and glows; it looks like it was carved from an emerald.
There is an etched CHINA on the base. There are no paper labels.
8 3/4” (22.2 cm) diameter x 3 3/8” (8.6 cm) tall. Weight 1 lb 11.8 oz (785 g)
There are no cracks or breaks. There are a few tiny rim edge chips, as well as a few wear scratches but the bowl still looks stunning.
This bowl under a lamp or in a window will light up the room with rich color. A classic Chinese shape just adds to its beauty.
