A Fine Irish pedestal bowl with hand blown bowl and pressed glass lemon squeezer foot.  The turned over rim bowl carries some imperfections, inclusions from the glassmaker's crucible but this is in stark contrast to the mastery of 18th century glass cutting. The perfect centrepiece for any grand table. This is one of very few styles that is uniquely Irish.

Additional Information : See ‘Irish Glass by Phelps Warren‘.  This piece can be attributed Cork as the cutting characteristics suggest, note the alternate gradiated prism cuts on the inverted rim and the large hollow facets to the body. In particular this piece exhibits the style of ‘soft’, flat cutting associated with Cork Glass Co. See pages 187 & 124/125 plate 86. You can also see an example of this bowl within 'Irish Glass' by Mary Boydell on plate 24, and 'English & Irish Glass' by W.A. Thorpe on page 31 plate B
