Brides Bank or what?
« on: March 11, 2013, 06:10:58 PM »
I've seen this described as a Bride's Bank or Wedding basket, or Applied Frog.   What little of these I saw on line indicated 1800s or Victorian some identified as Bohemian or Kralik, although another that was similar said early American.

It's larger and wider (squatter?) than it appears in the pictures due to the close up lens.  It stands approx. 5-1/2" tall and 7" wide.  Blown bowl with applied top.  The interior where the bowl and top meet is a bit rough.  The pontil scar on the bowl is left rough as well. 

So can we narrow the origin and age any?  Thanks for your knowledge on this one.

(Oh, This one happens to have a fracture in one of the loops I'll post a close up later.)

And here's the fracture.  I haven't figured out how something cracks there with no other damage.  You can not even feel it and I didn't notice it until I got it home looking at it in different light.  I'm sure it must have been there when I bought it though.  Price was that of lunch at the fast food drive though so I think I still did OK.   I've only seen a few of these in real life.
