Description

Hello:

This listing is for a small compote in the Avon Cape Cod Collection. The glass is a beautiful deep ruby red color. The base is 6 sided with a lacy edge. The top of the footed dish is round with a wider scalloped edge.

This splendid collection of glass is reminiscent of early American pressed glass called "Sandwich", whose lacy, intricate designs; fine background stippling and sparkling brilliance reflected the superb craftsmanship of its makers. The Boston & Sandwich Glass Works, founded on Cape Cod in 1825, had produced many of the most elaborate, detailed designs of this quality glass. Other companies in the region competed, but the popularity of "Sandwich" pieces resulted in the name becoming a generic term for pressed glass.

Inspired by the lacy delicacy of these designs, particularly the classic "Roman Rosette" pattern, Avon created this unique collection. Not only does it recall the beauty of this prized American glass, but its name commemorates the spirit of the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial which celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, as well as the area where Sandwich glass originated.

The compote is 3 1/2 inches tall. The opening diameter is 6 inches. Base is 3 inches across. This item is in good condition. There are no chips or cracks. The inside of the bowl has slight utensil scratches.

This is a heavy deep red glass. I like how lights cause the glass to throw a red reflection. Very pretty against a white background. Although pretty any time of the year, this compote really lends itself to decorating at Christmas and Valentine's Day. This size bowl would be nice for candy, or berry bowl. It is deep enough to use as a small serving bowl for cranberry sauce, for example. What a nice gift if filled with candies and tied up in cellophane with a bow.
