Antique American Brilliant Period heavy cut crystal glass candy dish. Pentagonal form with unusual five-pointed star pattern, and large leaves and vines between the points. Craftsmanship is fine and nicely detailed.
I believe this dates from the later ABP c. 1890s-1900s, when it became popular for geometric and botanical motifs to intermingle.
I have carefully examined the edge and found only one barely visible, shallow chip (see last photo); otherwise only minor surface wear and fleabites overall. A few small air bubbles here and there. Glass makes a bell-like tone when tapped with a pencil. I have tested with a UV flashlight and it does not fluoresce; while many antique cut crystal pieces will glow green, purple, orange or other colors under UV light, not all of them do. Measures 8 1/4" across, 1 7/8" high and 3/8 thick.Weighs 2 lbs 9 oz. A scarce piece that would be a great addition to any ABP collection; personally I think it would make a wonderful ritual object or wedding/anniversary gift for someone who practices witchcraft. From a smoke free home.
Colors may differ slightly from reality due to differences in computer/mobile displays.
