Find our gorgeous crystal collection here.
Video Translation: This is Jennifer here with City Farmhouse Antiques and I am here with this week's find of the week. This week I have this gorgeous Meissen crystal bowl. You can see the detail on this crystal piece is just phenomenal. It has multiple patterns and when you get up close you can see it has a scalloped rim and then let me see if I can get this picture a little more clear. When the video is darker you can see the patterns a little better. You can see the pinwheel design and this pretty faceted design on the outside. This is what you would call a cranberry cut to clear piece because it has that cranberry or ruby colored glass that is cut down to the clear glass. These cut to clear pieces have multiple layers of glass and as they cut through the layers you can see the colored glass on top and then the clear glass. Of course, they say the more detailed a piece of glass the more valuable it is. Meaning the more patterns there are, or the more intricate the design, the higher the value. You can see too that down in the center it has a beautiful star there with all this surrounding detail. This piece definitely has several patterns. This is a vintage piece by Meissen, a German company. So this piece is not an antique, but it is vintage. Gorgeous nonetheless. It is a pretty big piece at about 12 inches wide by about 6 inches tall and weighs about 8 pounds so this is a real sturdy piece of glass which is what you want in any high end piece of glass. You want to feel that weight when you pick it up.
