19thC Antique French Napoleon III Glass Cloche / Display Dome on Ebonised Wooden BaseAcquired in France very recently, this is a particularly large cloche/dome, one of four acquired, others will be listed separately.
It is c1870 in date, fully authentic, in untouched & honest condition, there are fab air bubbles & striations in the hand blown glass cloche / display dome.
This version is the more rare type, has a rectangular glass base as opposed to the more common oval or round.The original ebonised base has signs of age but remains solid & sound, also retains the original 4 wood feet.There's a small edge section of glass missing towards a corner - see photos, it isn't obvious & could be hidden by having a brown paper edging tape around the bottom of the dome, this was common practice to protect the glass when placing on another surface - see other cloches with tape attached.Dimensions
63cm high. Base is 30cm x 20cm
Weighs 2.55kgIt will be fully protected during shipping.
