EXQUISITE DALZELL'S CORNUCOPIA PATTERN COMPOTE with LID
GORGEOUS and HARD TO FIND WITH THE COVER! Old early American pressed pattern glass pedestal compote, comport, bowl, sweetmeat, candy box, jar with cover. The pattern is one of the FRUIT and VEGETABLE GROUP patterns, all made from the same blank mold, by Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton, ca. 1885. The group includes CORNUCOPIA , STRAWBERRY & CURRANT , BLACKBERRY & GRAPE , CHERRY & FIG . A delightful pattern medley celebrating the the bounty of fruits and vegetables that grace our tables, particularly at this time of year. Nice GENEROUS size: 11" tall to the tip of the finial x 7" diameter at the mouth of the bowl. The glass is clear and shiney and the pattern is meticulously and crisply pressed. JUST BEAUTIFUL!
NICE CONDITION! NO CRACKS! CRYSTAL CLEAR & SPARKLING! The MOUTH of the bowl has NO CHIPS! The cover has a couple of fleabites under the edge...and a very shall flake UNDER the edge. (see photo) Really not a problem at all! It is so difficult to find this piece with the cover, that a couple of age and use flaws seem quite irrelevant. T are some bubbles and strawmarks, of course, as expected in glass from this era. T is some light, fine, sporadic scratching in the bowl...nothing objectionable or unexpected at all. This is a STUNNING piece of old pattern glass, one for your collection for sure. Or an IDEAL GIFT for the collector on your Holiday shopping list. She's a REAL TREASURE at about 122 years old! :-)
