Here is one that should be desired by glass collectors and folk art collectors alike, as decorated tableware of this type seems to transcend the typical glass market. Finding a beautiful early 1840s bowl in a deep aqua “window glass” gets the heart pumping… but to find one with superimposed lily pad decoration, well, that is something to really get excited about! Very likely produced at the Redford Glass Factory, NY, this is glass has a brilliance that you rarely find in other factories. The diameter of this one is around 6 1/2″, and it stands just over 2″ tall. Open pontil scarred base, and a folded rim. Similar in form and construction to American Glass 1760-1930 Vol. I, The Toledo Museum of Art, pg. 144, #129. Very minor wear from use, but in excellent condition! Museum quality early American Glass!
