Antique American Brilliant Cut Glass Pedestal Compote Serving Dish

by PetitPoulailler

My mother would make our cut crystal "sing". It was so wonderful.

As she would carefully wash the pieces, I'd beg her ... 'Make it sing!' ... and, while the piece was still wet, she'd run her fingers gently over the glass rim, round and round - and the piece would sing. Like a bell. She told me it was a good way to be certain there were no fractures or imperfections.

So, as I was cleaning this piece, I did the same: and its song is beautiful. Clear and pure. No cracks. No chips. No imperfections.

Here is a lovely, diminutive ABC glass compote. With its radiant star base, smooth, tapered candle stem, and a dish with deeply scored swirls and fans surrounding hobstars - it is so beautiful on its own.

Delicate and perfect for your dressing table, a holiday buffet, the powder room counter.

Measures -
6.5" (16.5 cm) high
4.5" (11.4 cm) stem length
2.5" (6.4 cm) base diameter
4.875" (12.4 cm) dish diameter
1.5" (3.8 cm) approx. dish depth

The piece is in wonderful antique condition. I may have missed a chigger bite (but I do not think so). I can say with certainty this dates to at least 1940.

I ship via USPS 1st Class Parcel for both Domestic and International destinations. Lower US 48 destinations shipping includes USPS shipping insurance and all US destinations includes USPS Delivery Confirmation.
