Silesian Shell Shaped Glass Sweetmeat Dish Ambrosiaschale Antique 1750

A beautiful antique Georgian shell shaped sweetmeat dish with wheel cut engraved flowers and printy cut decoration. This lovely glass dates to the mid 18th century around 1750, George II was on the throne in the UK when this glass was made in the late baroque or rococo style. It was most probably made in Silesia or Bohemia.

This Silesian "Ambrosiaschale" (sweetmeat) glass has a moulded shell like bowl which is cut and polished and sits on a facet cut inverted baluster stem with a basal collar and knop. It stands on a plain low conical foot which is also cut with polished ovals or printy cuts. It is made of soda glass.

It is in very good antique condition with no cracks nor restoration, there is a small piece missing from the joint of the scroll to the rear of the shell possibly chipped or perhaps from manufacture see image 6. There are signs of tooling marks and some bubble inclusions in the body of the metal. 

This glass along with the others, which are being sold separately, shown in one of the images are a part of our personal collection that we have listed for sale. This glass is great for use or for a collector of antique sweetmeat dishes, Georgian glass or items with a nautical link.
