Old Rich-Cut Salad Bowl, Quintessential Geometric Pattern --You're going to Love It! The piece . This is a 9” by 3 5/8” salad bowl, likely dating from the earliest side of American Brilliant glass, 1880-1890. A Belle Epoque piece, a Gay Nineties piece. The glass is thick and heavy, and limits itself to the early motifs of glass cutting. No curves or arches, no engraving or frills. A masculine piece, perhaps from Dorflinger or Hawkes, who loved dividing their bowls horizontally with a deep, deep principle miter cut. Think of other such patterns, like Hawkes’ Brazilian . It weighs about 4 ½ pounds. Finer points. Another clue that this is an early piece is that the fans have deep-chiseled “fronds,” which were of course delicate to cut and polish, and later shortened, with less gap between them, less of a plunging neckline. The chain of hobstars recalls Hawkes, Dorflinger, and Meriden—but I’ve just decided that, given the central star on the floor, this is likely none of them, but more likely from Mount Washington—this being strictly guesswork. My opinion is more from “points of elimination” than anything else. Mount Washington did indeed give us some of the most crazy and stern of geometric patterns. If you love old glass patterns in which the glass itself shines through as the main feature, you’ll love this one. And note the depth of the cuts, especially the horizontal miter run. Condition. I had thought this bowl perfect, and it is nearly so, but a few of my pictures have surprised me with a couple of pinpoints. I can not find anything which I could call a “chip.” Still, it is remarkable how well this piece was kept through the years. I’d call it near-mint Natural Condition, by which I suggest that this piece was well kept and never repaired in anyway. You won’t find a cleaner example of such a piece. As far as I can tell, all patterns are without flaw. Final Thoughts. This is an excellent example of a salad bowl, and the best example of simple, early work that I’ve had. I heartily recommend it. Oh yes, you may see some minor scratches in the bottom. I nearly forgot, but only a few, which show up in photo #6 at 12 o’clock. With a minor polish down, just to brighten everything to the nth degree, this piece would be taken for stone-mint! Its structural aspects are the best ever! You know, I just looked: this piece shines like crazy: no need to subject it to the hazards of the repair room. Just enjoy it tel quel. En avant, les amis du verre!
