This was todays Flea Market Find! It a beautiful Art Glass with metal base and applied décor Candy Compote, but who made it? I don't know! :^(
When I bought it, it had some sort of dark brown glue, or compression adhesive, that had gotten between the applied glass décor, and bowl, and was seeping from the 3 connected pieces, that are held together, with a bolt with button top in the bowl, through the leg glass part, and into the metal base, and held with a nut, and lock-nut, with a cover plate, on the bottom, and felt on that. I took it all apart and cleaned it all. Then reassembled it without glue. Much better now! :^D
The milky blue iridescent bowl is 5 1/2" across the top, and 2 1/2" high, connected to the metal base, with a 2" tall 2 1/2" at the top, and 2" where it connects to the metal base, the base is 3" across the bottom, and tapers to meet the leg in 1/2" thick silver metal, with a gold wash. The top applied décor is clear with scallop like fins, the bottom is the same, but pink glass, the same as the top rim on the bowl.
This is what IronLace, and welzebub, helped me to discover about this Compote Candy Dish, it's a Venetian Murano Salviati Production Glass With Metal Base Compote Candy Possible chandelier Parts Circa 1880
Thank you for looking! I hope someone knows something about this Art Glass Metal Footed Candy Dish! All comments and questions welcome! :^)
