Antique Victorian Large Cut Glass Tazza/Comport Stand with Fold Over Rim c1870 (Code 2241)
A good quality mid Victorian cut glass tazza. It is of good size and large enough to use for serving at the dinner table. The center is dished slightly so it would work for fancies, fruits, sweetmeats etc. The rim is folded downward in the Irish style and cut into petals with lens cuts on each. The center of the tazza also has very attractive scallop cuts. The base is heavily formed with a deep star cut.
There are of course no makers names, it is almost unheard of to have the makers name on glass from this period and it dates around 1870. It has a slight warm tone to the glass which is quite common for pieces from this period. A fine item piece which is of course perfectly ok to use.
Remarkably good for period, due to the cutting the foot and rim are liable to chipping, but aside a few frits this example is very clean and has clearly been carefully looked after. Slight inclusions in the glass as typical for this period.
