American brilliant Cut Glass

This stunning two piece American Brilliant Cut Glass Flared Condiment Bowl & Under Plate is from the later part of the American Glass Period as it features a marriage of floral and geometric elements.

There are deep oval miter cuts forming the leaves around the eight petal flower. Filling these "leaves" are fine feather cuts. The leaves on either side of the plate/bowl intersect forming a diamond. Filling this diamond area there is a geometric design of fine cut (at the top) and rows of notched prisms at the bottom. In the center of both pieces is a 24 point mitered cut star.

The rim of the American Brilliant Cut Glass Flared Condiment Bowl & Under Plate has bevel cut half moons, which when viewed gives the appearance of a scallop.

We have been unable to identify the maker of this piece and believe after extensive research that it dates to the early 1910 flower period. The workmanship is precise and the piece could be by Pairpoint, Dorflinger, Libbey, Fry, Hawkes, Sinclaire or Tuthill.

The blanks of the American Brilliant Cut Glass Flared Condiment Bowl & Under Plate are quite heavy,with the under plate weighing 15 ounces, the bowl 1 pound 3 ounces.

The bowl is in Mint Condition, the under plate in Near Mint. The under plate does show, upon examination with a loop, 4 very small chips which are not readily visible. The glass shows no sickness and is clear and sparkling;the deep cuts reflecting light as beautifully as a prism. The bottom of the pieces show minor surface wear from use, which is consistent with its age.
