I have had it now for about three months because I have been so unwilling to list it. I have just been enjoying it in my own Crystal cabinet because it is just so stunningly beautiful.
But alas, I must list it. I want it to go to its forever home with an avid Czeck/Bohemian/German Crystal collector such as the sweet lady whos estate I received this from. This is a very thick heavy 5 pound centerpiece bowl with sawtooth edge and very deep sharp cuts.My husband and I both have ran our hands all over it and cannot find any cracks, chips or flea bites as well as we can tell. BIt can be hard to tell when you have a piece of crystal with this many deep cuts. We havent found any apparent to us. There is a tiny bit of cloudiness in the very bottom of the bowl that can be seen in the last two pictures under the light in my cabinet. Its probably nothing that a good day or so soaking in vinegar would hopefully take care of.
These antiquated LARGE IMPERLUX deeply cut, heavy lead crystal bowls come along once in a blue moon. There have been a handful of the smaller size round and cradle bowls by Imperlux in this pattern over the last feyears. I have yet to see this larger one. This fantastic large cradle centerpiece crystal bowl measures over a foot (12) in length, 6.5 wide by just over 5 deep. I have seen a couple other cradle bowls listed over the past few months but none of them are the size, age or depth of design put into this piece of beautiful Czechoslovakian crystal.Truly a one of a kind prize for the collector. If you prefer Fed ex please make sure to change that at your check out before you pay. HIGH DEFINITION PICTURES ARE PART OF DESCRIPTION more pictures available upon request if needed.
