Cut glass bon bon dish? help please
« on: June 29, 2014, 05:21:51 PM »
This is a work of art in my eyes there are over 500 cuts to the inner rim edge alone, it must have took a while and a lot of effort to make,  it cost almost nothing and i'm wondering how old it is?, the edges are razor sharp, the lid and base have nibbles and the base has some wear, it's crystal clear with no seeds and the glass is half an inch thick.

It measures 5 1/2 inches in height and 4 1/2 inches in width.

I agree, some of these cut pieces are very appealing.

Difficult to say much that is positive............   I'd suggest pre 1940 and could be earlier, although the base doesn't look to have a great amount of wear.
Seems rather posh for a lidded sugar, but the size is about right - and with that flat polished base possibly Continental rather than British.

On balance I'm tempted to go for an item from a trinket set, or something closely related, although not a perfume or cologne, since it doesn't appear to have a ground stopper.

Perhaps someone else will have a better idea. :)
