Meriden Bowl w/Wilcox Sterling Silver Rim
This is one of the most elegant sterling-rimmed bowls we have had the pleasure of offering. The key to its elegance is its simplicity. The size, scale and curves of the simple, beaded sterling rim blend to the shape and cutting of the glass in a manner that is most pleasing. When the glass is viewed from the top side, one sees the deeply-cut 28-point hobstar in the bottom and the notching on the miters which are separated by concave columns. When viewed from the side, the glass has a totally different look due to the prismatic effect of the concave columns.
This fine piece of American Brilliant cut glass was created by one of our finest cutting houses, the Meriden Cut Glass Co. of Meriden, CT and is adorned with sterling silver by their closest allied partner, the Wilcox Silver Plate Co., also of Meriden, CT. The maximum diameter of the bowl is 9 1/2-inches and it stands 3-inches tall. Both the glass and the sterling silver are in better than extremely fine condition. Enjoy!
