Description
This is a beautifully made and stylish hand blown glass bowl dating from approximately the first decade of the 20th century. The bowl follows a familiar shape for this manufacturer, with its mushroom like shape and undulating rim. The main body of the bowl is clear lead glass, but set around the flattened rim are 6 green 'eyes' - officially the pattern is known as Cairngorm, but it's frequently referred to a 'Peacock eye' on account of the applied green roundels. The green eyes are set within a clear glass roundel and these have little stems that trail down the edge and meet in the middle of the base on the underside. As is usual with Cairngorm glass, the underside of the base has a polished pontil mark. I've sold a number of these Stuart & Son mushroom bowls, but this is the smallest example of its type that I've personally encountered. Its diminutive size doesn't lessen the quality of manufacture, and its size makes it ideal for display with with other similar pieces.
measurements
The bowl measures approximately 11.5cm across and has a height of approximately 8cm. The width across the base is 6.2cm. The unpacked weight is 188.6g.

condition
The condition all round is excellent, with no faults to report. There are no chips, cracks or other damage to the surface of the glass.
