safn-7913   $12.00


click for details
Nice little art glass dish, possibly Murano. Slumped glass with lots of pretty millifiori. Gold backing (like they did with goofus glass) on the textured back side, has some wear. The gold and the texturing really enhance the piece. Measures 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" and is pretty shallow. It may be an ashtray, or a candy dish. Not sure. No chips or cracks, just some minor wear to the gold on the underside.

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4022f   $58.00

The first order reference on English silver marks and makers, Jackson's Hallmarks, adds "Important Art Nouveau" to the side margin entry about Liberty & Co., whose "L&C" in diamonds, "lion" for sterling, "anchor" for Birmingham, date letter "e" for 1904-05 appear on the 1 1/4" diameter, round, bowl backside of this 4 3/8" long, weighty at .9 T. oz., spoon.
