Description


A mid 20th century Venini art glass dish. It is in a deep sea blue tone and cased in clear glass. The interior features unusual decoration of gilt cables or cords partly shredded and captured within the clear glass. The shape is slightly squared off and the base has been flat ground for stability. There is no mark, but this is a known catalogued Venini design, and I have also had a signed example in the past.

Condition


Minor wear around the rim from normal use. Wear and scracthes to underside base as expected. Some air bubbles captured in the glass from production.

Description


An wonderful Indian Nagina (Islamic region) ornately carved two division tea caddy. It has ebony panels and has two tin liners to the compartments. It comes from the Northern provinces of India around the time that Colonial power was secured in this area from the 1850-1870’s.

The carving is very detailed as you can see in the images and the lids both appear original with matching carving. The base and plinth are soft wood and the plinth is also carved, the detail being less sharp being due to the difference in the woods.

A scarce item and lovely looking example, cleaned and waxed to a low sheen and ready for display.

Condition


The lock is non functional so the key is just for show. The hinges are fine. Minor faults to carving. Some shrinkage splits at corners with wax fills, quite typical for period and not spoiling the overall effect -see images Read more

Description


A large and heavy antique cut glass pedestal style bowl. It dates to the early Victorian period around 1850-60 and is of English production, possibly from the Richardsons or Oslers factory. The bowl features an everted rim with decorative cutting done to a high standard. 

The bowl may have been intended as a table centerpiece but would of course also make a fine fruit bowl or use simply as a decorative piece. The sides of the bowl are flute cut and this extends down through the foot giving it an octagonal form at the base. The underside of the base is also star cut. 

A fine antique bowl with great look and of substantial construction, bound to make an impact when on display .

Condition


There are some chips and nibbles around the rim as inevitable with this type Read more
