Do the photos of the iridescence on this Westmoreland Glass Co.'s hen on nest do it justice? It's luminous, sparkly and looks like a rainbow and an oil slick had a baby! The actual glass colour is pink, cranberry or amethyst...it's difficult to distinguish with the iridescent coating. Highly collectible and a great piece of pressed glass! Use it as a trinket, soap, catchall, candy or nut dish...or whatever you wish. Makes a fantastic easter decor piece and suits any style....shabby chic, cottage, farmhouse, industrial and we dare say, modern!
In excellent condition, no chips or cracks. Marked with Westmoreland's embossed WG which was used from 1949-1984.
Measures 7-1/2" x 5-7/8" x 6-1/4"
We highly recommend this piece be hand washed to preserve its original character.
