PAIR OF GEORGIAN SWIRLED CUT GLASS URNS WITH DOMED LIDS
Circa late 18th century, probably English
Item # C104029
A fine pair of late 18th century Georgian cut glass urns with domed lids, they exhibit a marvelous swirled design in the faceted bodies, the lids with equally geometrical cuts that culminate in cove-facets surrounding the finials. They rest over heavy squared bases with a ground pontil, the thick glass with wonderful tiny air bubbles caught in the glass.
Measurements: 10 7/8" H x 4 3/8" diameter
Some minor abrading to raised edges of cut glass, light wear/softening to the faceted tips of the finials; scuffs and wear to the insides of the vessels as well as more extensive wear/rubbing/abrading to the undersides of the bases. Corners of the bases are uneven and ground with minor edge chipping. Old chip to top of one base.
