OUTSTANDING DEEP COBALT BLUE PITTSBURGH BOWL

ITEM 6280. DEEP BOWL, deep cobalt blue with violet highlights, dip molded cylinder with gently flaring sides, pontil scar, 3 ¾"H x 9 ½"D, folded and tooled mouth simulating beading or threading, a mint bowl exhibiting the expected usage wear. American, probably blown at a Pittsburgh Glass Works, 1830-1850, rare.

Rare in color and beautifully constructed, this stupendous bottle glass bowl is a delightful example of the glassblower's art. The rim detail is reminiscent of the beading found on Pittsburgh made thistle vases of the 1840s and it is quite possible that the piece was blown there. A South Jersey attribution is also plausible, though to my mind less likely. In either case, this is a GORGEOUS American bottle glass bowl with good usage wear and loads of eye appeal.



SOLD!
