A Time Remembered
This vintage victorian glass bowl with rolled rim and hand painted enameling from the 1890's is unmarked. The flowering of the brilliant colors and designs of art glass during the late 1800s must stand as another high mark in the history of art glass. France led in producing beautifully patterned cameo glass; Thomas Webb & Co. of England made both cameo and other high quality products; but it was in America that new styles and shades of art glass dominated the field. The craze for Victorian art glass lasted into the 20th century, when it was outstripped by the Art Nouveau creations of Tiffany and Frederic Carder of Steuben. Today’s art glass manufacturers are producing amberina, peachblow, and many other art glass colors, which have become collectable in their own right. But nothing can quite compare with a 100-year-old example from America’s Victorian art glass heyday. In very good + condition, without chips, cracks or fleabites it measures 3 inches tall, 9 inches wide and 8 inches deep. An addition to any Victorian Glass Collection.
