This is a gold encrusted crystal Finger Bowl & Matching Under Plate in the classic "Congress" pattern from the St. It is mouth blown and hand cut. The gold is applied by hand after the crystal is etched in relief. It is then refired so that the gold becomes part of the glass - to retard the gilt from wear. It dates from the opulent days of La Belle Epoch.

A favorite of the Newport elite, it may very well have graced the tables of any of the Vanderbilt mansions: The Breakers, Marble House, etc. Or for that matter, any of the other Robber Baron "cottages" along Bellevue Ave. This is a unique opportunity for you to grace your own table with this rare vestige of a by-gone era.

The bowl measures about 2 3/8-inches high and 4 1/2-inches in diameter. The under plate about 1-inch high and 6 1/2-inches in diameter. Both are in excellent condition with faint signs of use. Please Inquire for Rates to Specific Locales (please provide Country, City, & Postal Code).
