Late Victorian glass bon bon dish on a stand, circa 1890-1900.
The glass has been hand painted and glazed, decorated with a delicate lattice design in gold with white dots. Within the centre, a light pearl grey and white ground, finely drawn with gold, slightly Baroque crescents, and on the white ground, hand painted roses and periwinkles are strewn in graceful garlands. It is as if the inner ground is a cloth placed in the centre.
The hand blown glass has been shaped almost in a wave design, like a floppy garden hat blown by the wind.
It measures 14.5 cm by 15.5 cm and is 9 cm high at its extremity, while the bowl dips down to about 5 cm high.
