This centerpiece bowl was identified by a researcher of American Brilliant Period cut glass who was kind enough to let me know. Known examples of Shotton cut glass of this size and quality have brought prices in the thousands.Measures 4 1/2" high, 11 1/2" long and 8 1/4" wide with the glass being 3/8" thick. This bowl is certainly worthy of being added to any cut glass collection. It is in excellent Estate condition with no noted flaws. There may be a hidden nick or two within the elaborate cut design, however, we found nothing at all wrong with this centerpiece bowl.
