partially gilt opaline glass
6 1/8 x 6 x 3 in. (15.7 x 15.2 x 7.6 cm)
Overall in very good condition. The gilding is in overall stable and well-preserved condition throughout and retains its original brightness and complex surface. The gilding presents with occasional and light surface scratches as well as areas of light rubbing concentrated to the rim, shoulders and base of the piece, which partially reveal the opaline glass undersurface. The glass surfaces are overall in very good condition. One of the textured sides of the piece with an indentation to one of the circular edges measuring approximately 1/8 inch wide and not visually distracting. A very chic and elegant form.
