This is a stunning and very unusual Palm Bowl. The colour of the glass is a deep tobacco brown and is decorated with organic detail typical of the Art Nouveau period. The colour too is typical of the era.
It has lovely, simple detail all around the base and above the three feet. It is pressed glass and is of very good quality. It is in perfect condition.
In perfect condition – Height 14.5 cm and diameter 21.5 cm. Quite heavy.
A palm bowl was traditionally used for an exotic house plant and would be placed on a hallway table or on the centre of a table. A traditional plant was an aspidistra.
As with all pressed glass mould lines are visible and there may be imperfections in the glass.
