Antique Victorian Cranberry Art Glass Preserve Dish Applied Glass Seashell Trim Silverplated Tulip Holder
This Victorian Cranberry Glass Dish with Applied Seashell Glass Trim is in EXCELLENT Condition for its age with no chips, cracks, flake, repairs or other damage seen. The silverplated holder shows even patina that we did not polish. It will polish up nicely if you choose to do so. No physical damage to the holder, you may wish to bend the top a little to even it out. Otherwise, this is a remarkable example of Victorian Art Glass.
This piece was originally used as a preserve or jam server. It can also be used for condiments, sugar cubes or any small portion such as olives. It will make a gorgeous display piece for your Victorian home when not in use. We have enlarged the photos for you to see the details. Please see our last photo for size comparison.
The Art Glass Dish measures 4 3/4" across the widest point (across the seashells). The bowl measures 3 3/8" across the opening and stands 2" tall. The silverplate holder is marked EPNS (Electroplated Nickel Silver) and stands 5" tall and 5 5/8" wide. The holder has a really interesting shape on the handle. It looks a little lop-sided in our photos and it can be gently bent to even it out. Since this piece is about 140 years old, I did not want to mess around with it too much. It displays beautifully, much better than photos translate.
**The green seen in some of the photos on the trim is a reflection from an item in the background. This dish is 2-tone in cranberry and clear only and is exquisite.
