Hi again :) Lately I have been seeing more and more "yard art" involving various items of glass glued together for the visual and light-catching effect. Often a candlestick or bud vase is used for the "stem" and then beyond that is up to ones imagination. Most of what I see is made to resemble flowers but this I suppose is meant for indoors and resembles a shallow compote. A Goodwill find sitting close to another glued-together item involving a large Iris & Herringbone ruffled marigold bowl.
This is Higbee's "Alpha" pattern well-glued to what I think is a much more modern crystal candlestick. The Alpha dish is 7 3/4 in wide and 1 1/2 in tall & footed. I think it was originally a shallow compote. The candlestick has a ground and polished base with a cut hobstar surrounded by a cut pinwheel. A similar hobstar/pinwheel motif is deeply pressed into each of the 4 flat sides. Alone the candlestick measures app. 5 3/4 in tall. Any realistic ideas on how to separate the 2? I own other items in the "Alpha" pattern and would love for this one to join in its original form. Thanks :)
