Vintage Iridescent Carnival Glass Punch Bowl Set
A rare find! A complete eight piece iridescent carnival glass punch bowl set in a multi-faceted floral hobstar pattern. Punch bowl features wavy flared edging with decorative points at the rim. Bowl can be used separately but is designed to sit on its own separate pedestal base. The base showcases a flared bottom and “guard rail” top rim edge to hold bowl securely in place. The two piece pedestal bowl is accompanied by six sturdy complementary handled cups in the same pattern. The cups are further enhanced by a ribbed design on each handle.
While this complete ensemble can be thoroughly enjoyed as a sophisticated entertaining set, the pedestal bowl can also be repurposed as a stunning plant holder or vessel for floral arrangements. A beautiful addition to the design enthusiast’s serving pantry, this complete Victorian cut glass set is also a collector’s dream.
The set’s color, originally referred to as Marigold by the manufacturer, is an exquisitely complex and rich orange with notes of amber and honey. The facets of this intricately cut carnival glass capture light beautifully and artfully. Shimmering from across the room, its iridescent quality reflects a rainbow of color, light and shadow. A An effect that is uncompromisingly captivating. We love this iridescent coloration paired with the cool contrast of smooth blues as shown. A stunning set to be admired, enjoyed and treasured for years to come.
Excellent condition. Minor scratches noted inside base of a few cups. Slight color variation is noted on the sixth cup, which appears marginally lighter in color than the other five.
