Shown is a wonderful yellow uranium and /or vaseline art glass bowl created during the Art Deco era; likely the 1920's. There is no known signature or maker's mark found on the bowl.. Since I can't locate another example of this piece in research, I have no way of knowing if this piece originated in the United States or elsewhere.

The shape of the bowl is rather unusual in that it resembles an upside down bell-formed comport / compote.. and hand blown into one single piece. The entire inside "foot" of the base is open (for use) unlike most comports which have a single foot (or feet) attached from the base.

This piece is truly unusual in form and in color. Contained within the glass itself are a small amount of random decorative glass inserts; reminiscent of murines which are mostly seen in Italian art glass. There's also opalescence within the glass which can be seen (more or less) in some lighting conditions and / or different angles. An unpolished pontil can be found within the underside glass base. The inside bowl is completely enclosed from the pontil. While the glass is transparent, random swirls may be seen easily up close from the glass blowing process. The originality of this functional art glass is evident. It's a scarcely found art glass collectable which would add beauty to any art glass display. This bowl is one of a kind art.

This is a medium- large bowl which had good weight and standing balance.

Approximate weight: ( 4 lbs. )

Approximate Dimensions: ( 8" high X 10" wide X 9 & 1/4" diameter across upper mouth )

Antique pre-owned condition is considered very good. We find no chips, cracks, or repairs. There are random tiny glass bubbles as commonly found in hand blown glass pieces. There is one tiny bubble pop on the exterior of the glass camoflaged by a murine-like glass insert. There are a couple of small use-related random fine scratches / scrapes on the interior bowl. These are not easily seen. Please view all photos. (Please be aware of reflections on the glass.)

If you have questions or clarifications, please email prior to placing an order. Many thanks!
