This ABP "Harvard & Daisy" pattern bowl has a modified Hobnail pattern with Crosshatching and miniature Hobstars all-over. There is a raised diamond cut between each 6 sided hobnail cut, with etched daisies around the bottom rim of bowl. It measures 8 1/8" Diameter, 4 1/8 Height, and 1/2" this. This ABP Cut Glass Bowl weighs 3lbs 12oz. This bowl is a rare Masterpiece! I have measured it with black light to ensure authenticity and age, as well as looking for flaws. There are few light microscopic scratches that cannot be seen without a powerful magnifying glass. There may be a flea chip in one of the hobnails, but it was hard to decern if that was a human error. I have searched the entire net and have not yet found this piece. I have come across pieces from this collection, but not the bowl itself.
