Bowl (Ireland), ca. 1810

This is a bowl. It is dated ca. 1810 and we acquired it in 1986. Its medium is cut glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This oval-shaped footed bowl with scalloped rim uses molding and hand-cut finishing to create a pattern that features lozenge shapes, stars, and husks—popular motifs in the neoclassical designs of its era. The prismatic effect created by significant lead content in the glass accentuates the pattern in a dazzling geometric display.

This object was bequest of Walter Phelps Warren. It is credited Bequest of Walter Phelps Warren.
