Description

A wonderful Victorian pressed glass basket bowl in purple & white marbled Malachite glass, also known as Slag glass. Made by British company Sowerby in the 1880's, and bears their peacock trademark on the inside base, as well as a registered design lozenge. This design, pattern number 1192 1/2 is shown on page 2 of Sowerby's Illustrated Pattern Book No IX, issued in June 1882.

Size

Measures approx. 3 inches tall by 4.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

No chips, just a very small fine "split" to the handle part, shown in final picture. I'm not sure if this is damage or just from the manufacturing process, as it seems very common with these items.
