freiheit
(265 items)

I have seen many of these items with a pressed glass top, and I never liked them. This one, however, seems to be different. The base is unmarked except for a few numbers and the the top appears to be hand-cut.
My best guess is that it comes from the 50's. Any ideas?

Thanks for looking:)

    hi freiheit, very nice piece. The glass top from Bohemia. The base looks earlier, would say the 20´s. The quality of cut is extreme fine.

    That's far from the style of the 1950's. Modernism was the style of that period, sleek lines, little ornamentation, non-naturalistic themes, machine-like. During the 1950's, this kind of thing was very much out of style and lots of it was thrown away for Formica and chrome.

    If this isn't a reproduction, its from at least the turn of the century.

    Lilliflunew and Stillwater: Thanks to both of you for you interesting comments. When I say this piece, I just had to have it but I had no idea what it really was :)

    You don't think they would have been made together Lilli? The glass doesn't really look like a kind of bowl that would have been able to sit on a table, and did they just make bases like that and sell them with nothing on top? I don't know much about this stuff though
