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.
