Opaque white blown glass bowl with reddish gold iridescent finish on interior of bowl; ground pontil mark.
Gift of Mr. Alfred M.F. Kiddle
This bowl superficially resembles iridescent tablewares produced by Tiffany Studios, but some differences, including the use of opaque white as opposed to amber glass, suggest that the bowl may have been made by one of Tiffany's competitors.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
