Antique German Glassware ~ Flora Ice Blue Square Ruffled Pressed Glass Bowl from Radeberg - PG228
Description ~ this amazing bowl was produced at the end of the 19th century in Radeberg, Germany and is done in the Flora pattern in ice blue, slightly glowing glass - an incredible treasure! This is possibly a bride's bowl. Extremely hard to find and highly collectible - displays absolutely wonderfully; an ideal gift.
Re-purposing ~ while this piece is best left to display, it could also be used on the vanity table or entry hall table to hold trinkets and such. Measurements ~ 7.5" across x 2.5" tall
Pattern / Dates ~ turn of the 19th century; c1890
Hallmarks ~ unsigned identified online via an old German pressed glass catalogue - please see pictures
Condition ~ Excellent: pre-owned vintage - while this incredible piece does have a chip underneath the bowl on her foot (see last picture), this flaw is easily hidden and not unexpected for a glass of this age - otherwise, this piece shows little other evidence of age or use. Shelf wear &/or use marking is minimal.
