Description: PRESSED LACY PRINCESS FEATHER MEDALLION AND BASKET OF FLOWERS OBLONG COVERED DISH, colorless, base variation with beaded and stippled rim. Boston & Sandwich Glass Co.

Condition Report: Outstanding condition, cover is virtually proof with only very minor flakes/mold roughness, base is near proof with scattered tipped scallops and several small spalls.

Notes: This is only the second example of the beaded and stippled rim variation with cover that we have sold. It seems to be rarer than the grape vine rim variation. One of the best possible examples of a great American lacy glass icon.

Provenance: Ex-collection of Esther H. Ludwig, Berks County, PA.

Dimensions: 5" HOA, 8 3/4" x 10 1/2" OA.

Literature: Lee - Sandwich, pl. 151, bottom. The McKearins - American Glass, pl. 160, fig. 2. Rose - Corning, pl. XXVIII, catalogue 118. Spillman - Corning, p. 94, fig. 267. Parallels B & K I, fig. 1031.
