Glass covered compote, c.1870

This large pressed glass covered compote stands 13″ tall and was made in America during the Victorian era

It is not surprising that the original glass base did not support the weight of this heavy piece. A funnel-shaped tin replacement base, painted gold, adds “elegance”

A similarly shaped covered compote with frosted leaf pattern shows what the original base might have looked like
