Hi again. Age? Somewhere around 1911-1920 ish (possibly into the 1920s).
That was a reasonable price for the piece. It's an under-rated item, imho. If it was purple and with knock-your-socks-off iridescence, then you'd be looking at a whole lot more money. The marigold items are more easily found and more affordable.
Just look at the mould work on the exterior. Isn't it fabulous? There's also all kinds of fascinating links...........
For example, the interior design is Scroll Embossed, and made in America, as I noted. But Sowerby in England copied the design. Totally ripped it off! Not unusual, but fascinating (imho).
The exterior is known as Eastern Star, but as I said, some people call the outside design Curved Star. Now that's plain wrong, but it leads us down another path. The intricate geometric design on your piece has similarities with the Brockwitz (German) Curved Star design (called Zurich by Brockwitz). Was there some copying going on? Or was it just coincidence that there are slight similarities?
Lots and lots more to say about all that, but I have gone off at a complete tangent. I did that on purpose 'cos I really wanted to show you what a fascinating piece it is. It may not be a top dollar item, but its place in the history of glass is priceless.
It's also very pretty :lol:
