This beautiful BLACK on WHITE CAMEO ART GLASS CHARGER / BOWL was made by Glass Artist Kelsey Murphy. It features an ORIENTAL inspired CARVED FLORAL DESIGN of DOGWOOD TREE BRANCHES. The bowl does not sit flat on a table. It was made to tilt to one side. A bit about CAMEO GLASS and the ARTIST: Kelsey Murphy directed the production of this extraordinary new line that was introduced by Pilgrim in the late 1980s. The new line would be known as Cameo Glass. Cameo Glass was made by a process that used sandblasting and hand scribing verses, or he used acid etching to reduce the surface of the glass. This was the same sort of method that was used in the Victorian Era. The cased glass was carved through sandblasting and this would reveal the desired color and design. Cameo Glass came in cranberry, cobalt, crystal, green, pink, topaz and black and white. All of the designs of the Cameo Glass line were created by Kelsey Murphy. These signed and numbered pieces are part of limited editions. After many years in the art glass making industry the Pilgrim Art Glass Company closed its doors in 2002. This Charger / Bowl is signed Kelsey/Pilgrim in diamond pen script on the bottom. The CONDITION is ESTATE / USED. It has a pontil on the bottom. This is a decorative item used only for display.

Clear glass basket vase, by Roberto Moretti, a top designer for Pilgrim Glass. Characteristic freestyle glass making of his, that is why it looks like it leans to one side. Unsigned, but I have been informed by an advanced collector that it is definitely one of his. 7 1/2 in. high, 3 3/4 in. deep, 5 in. wide. No chips or cracks. Has a few very light scratches which I tried to get in the photos but they are just too light to pick up clearly. The handle has a few very tiny rough spots that I had to mention for accuracy, they are only noticeable if you feel for them. Hand polished pontil. An elegant piece perfect for gift-giving!
