Wonderful piece of unsigned (we couldn’t find a signature) piece of Crystal from the American Brilliant Period. We apologize for the pictures we just couldn’t bring out the sparkle this bowl really has. The master craftsman of this piece was incredible with the way his cuts brought out the silver and diamond reflection of this piece and parts are just like looking in a mirror. It is approximately 9" in diameter and 4 1/8" tall. There are a few condition problems though the cut and style of the bowl really drowns them out to the eye. There are about 6 or seven chips or flakes on the rim teeth and a few nicks (we posted some pictures of a few of them). On the rest of the piece there are a few little flakes and nicks along the edges and a few very minor surface scratches. The design has been elusive to us, and the nearest we could come up with is Heinz because they did an 8 point star. As we said this piece is very unique because of the 8 point star, and the inside of the ray is not cross hatching by rather what looks to be what we call railroad cuts, as the closer to the star center you get the bigger the cut is. There is 2-fan cuts one top and one bottom and then 6 stars in the other areas around the star, which is then surrounded by a crosshatched crescent. And in between the two Crescents there is a fan on the top and bottom with art deco type triangles. The bottom there is a 24-point star and the cut around the center of the star is just like a prisms. All the other star centers have the same detail but not on the scale of this piece. If you want a piece that goes WOW, and a stick in your mind, and not one everyone else has, then this is the piece for you. This piece is also a very heavy piece over 4 ˝ pounds before packaging.
