A stunning antique French blue overlay cut glass jardiniere or bowl with gilt rim and matching gilt metal stand with swag and tails pattern. The underside of the base has a floral pattern. Round bowl base is cut with a star burst shape and the sides have oval windows with slice cut edges. This gives a scalloped shape to the round base.
No chips, no fleabites or damage to edges or corners of glass. Some original features in handmade glass manufacture on base. 2 tiny scratches or possibly original flaws in glass. Only visible on extremely close inspection. See last 3 photos which are close-ups of these.The stand has one small section of top edge slightly pushed in (see photo) - I think this was done to make the glass bowl fit tightly as it prevents the stand falling off when the glass is picked up and it doesn't really notice from a side view although it is there and can be seen if you look down on that section. Diameter of bowl 14.5cm. Free Collection in Central London. If you wish to arrange your own courier to collect, or if you would like a quote for me to pack and send, please contact me first.
