Salesman Sample Miniature Victorian Brides Basket Art Glass Bowl Silver Frame EX
Salesman Sample Miniature Victorian Brides Basket Art Glass Bowl Silver Frame EX. We have a FANTASTIC life time collection of antique Victorian Art Glass and Silver Plate with some extremely "Rare" examples for your pleasure. These listing are for "Miniature" Brides Baskets that are almost impossible to find anymore much less having three to choose from. These are produced exactly the same as their full size counter parts but maybe one fifth the size.
The bowl is cased art glass , enameled decorated with a rough pontil (Where they separate the bowl from the blow pipe) all indicative of a quality glass house. The ornate little footed silver plated frame is again identical to its full size brethren only miniaturized. Treat yourself to something of "Investment Quality" for the New Year - You will not be disappointed! This little beauty measures about 5-3/4" tall and about 7" across its widest point and 2-1/4 across the feet (corner to corner) and a 1-7/8' dia.
The bowl measures 6" across the ruffles (side to side) - 2" tall and a bottom fitter dia. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story... Guaranteed as to age and condition!
Photos are part of the description! Absolutely NO cracks , chips or breaks or other grievous damage.
I will note minor wear of gold gilt tracery and enameled decoration from decades of diligent cleaning. Could use a gentle cleaning/polishing or enjoyed as it is. Attention: ALL buyers of vintage and antique electrical appliances including lamps, hanging lights, radios, fans, etc. Anything that plugs in or needs to be hard wired. It is YOUR responsibility to inspect all original or re-wired items as to how viable the wiring is for use prior to plugging it in. If you do not feel comfortable evaluating it yourself, enlist a professional. It is your home or office - we suggest to error on the side of caution! We have tried to accurately describe any chips, cracks, repairs or other damage that may impact the value of the piece. Flaws or inconsistencies that occurred during the manufacture of the piece - often times under less than ideal conditions - are not considered to be damage, will not be listed, and are not grounds for a return. Examples of this may include, but are not limited to: Glass items - straw marks, mold marks, dirt and/or ash fired into the body of the ware, air bubbles, color variations, size variations, pattern irregularities, scratches on the base, etc. Pottery items - uncleaned seam lines, nicks or chips in the clay body that have been painted/glazed over when first produced, errant brush strokes, dirt and/or debris fired in the glaze, small glaze pops, kiln kisses, color variations, etc. We stand behind all the items we sell and guarantee them to be authentic, however, we do not sell on approval and do not make price adjustments after the sale. On larger pieces you may or may not have to arrange for help to unload. All furniture, whether it has been refinished or is in excellent original condition, is pre-owned and will show some minor surface imperfections, as expected on items between 50-150+ years old. We use reserves on some items we sell to protect our initial investment, and is, in most instances, about 1/2 of the price found in a leading value guide and would be a "bargain" for a collector or dealer alike.
