Neat little Bohemian basket of joy from 1895. Take a peek at No. 485 from the Butler Brother's wholesale advertisement to match the shape. The body of the basket is cranberry spreading to pink glass. The vaseline thorn handle gains an added applied twig on each side of the basket. Not often found by design. The added crimped ribbon of vaseline glass along the edge of the basket is a nice complementary contrast with the darker shade of cranberry. Snapped pontil. Harrach or other Bohemian glasshouse.
6" tall. The rim is 2.50" diameter. The base is 2" diameter. 4" wide, at best.
