One of the most beautiful and innovative pieces I've seen. This stunning pressed glass frosted mermaid pedestal, clear base and clear dish was created in the style of the Baccarat "Dolphin".
The frosted glass mermaid pedestal alone is just incredible with its finely detailed face, hair and curled tail. The top of the mermaid has a fitting that allows for interchangeable accessories depending on how one wants to use this ingenious system.
This particular piece comes with a large pressed glass dish with a gorgeous, stylized spider web pattern which fits nicely over the mermaid and is held in place with a glass ring and screw on glass finial.
In overall excellent condition, free from chips and cracks. Base is unmarked.
Appraised at $345 CAD, we have it on offer for $300 CAD.
Pedestal Size: 9.5" | Dish Size: 14" x 1.5"
After much internet research and in consultation with the Corning Glass Museum in New York State, we are unable to confirm the maker of this piece. It was sold to us as "Baccarat" but we feel that may be incorrect. We concluded that this piece was made by one of the following manufacturers in France: Baccarat, St. Louis, Portieux, or Vallérysthal. Whomever the manufacturer, this is an incredible, one-of-a-kind piece!
