Antique EAPG Priscilla large glass compote
Collection of select antique & vintage items for your home-with an eye for quality in design, materials, craftsmanship: Georgian to Mid Century Modern
A very unusual antique Victorian open compote because of its size: 9" high, 12" from corner to corner ! , and 9" X 9" (flat side X flat side- top area)... a substantial piece of pressed glass to make an impressive center piece to your holiday or special occasion table!
Made by Dalzell Gilmore & Leighton this is commonly known as "Priscilla" ( pattern #61) but was originally introduced as "Alexis" and also known as Steele, Late Moon and Stars, Crown Jewel and Sun and Stars. This pattern was made into a variety of pieces including impressive cake stands and other compotes but I haven't found any quite so big as this one! There are 20 radiating fluted ridges with the repeating moon (or sun) and star pattern which is mirrored in the footed base.
Note this is also a piece of "manganese" glass with a natural light, pinkish lavender tint, more noticeable in some light and barely noticeable in others. It is in very good condition with no chips or cracks but the customary bubbles and straw marks (but just a few!) and a very small scuff here and there. Sure to be an impressive part of your entertaining decor!
