A beautiful and scarce square Expanding Star bowl from the Brilliant Period of American cut glass. Measures about 8" square and about 2" deep. I don't know the maker.
Very heavily cut on a great blank. Central 8-point star with hobstars in between replete with flashing. Overall excellent condition - the teeth look good.There is minor flaking to some of the exterior. One minor flake creates a white area which can be seen from the front (see pic). The flake can be seen from the front in the 2nd picture, upper left quadrant. I also included a shot of the type of exterior flaking that is present - it is minimal as well.
Minimal surface wear - shiny and fresh in appearance. I believe this shape is difficult to find. PA buyers please provide resale number if needed. Please check out The Collectors Ark Store. We regularly feature antique , vintage , and contemporary porcelain , pottery , glass , crystal , and stemware , as well as replacement china.
