Another great item from the Dorflinger Glass Works. This is a very respected and sought after company of the Brilliant Period. They produced their own high quality blanks and were known for their excellent cutters.This is an unusual shaped compote. It has a straight 90 degree angle side gallery that is cut in a chain of hobstars. The exact blank is pictured in the Dorflinger book by Feller on page 277. It is cut on blank 402. Another very unique feature is the stem has a pattern cut ball or knob in the middle. Excellent blown glass blank that is brilliant and clear. Nice hefty weight also. This is really unique piece to add to a collection. The compote measures 7 inches tall and 7 inches diameter. It is in excellent condition. It flouresces under the blacklight to indicate American Brilliant Period (1876 6to 1916). Each winning item will be carefully packaged for safe delivery.
