The dome has a clear faceted glass knob applied the its top with cranberry pink or ruby shading down to clear over white opal. The bottom has a ruffled rim, cranberry pink or ruby rim shading to clear in its center cased over a white opal exterior.
It has a ground pontil. The covered dish measures about 7 1/8 inches tall and about 10 inches wide. It is in remarkable condition with no chips or cracks.There are the normal irregularities done in the making such as bubbles, inclusions, straw marks, and the pontil has a chip on the outer edge that was done in the making when the pontil rod was separated from the glass and before the pontil scar was finished. The dome has a small scuff mark about 1 inch down from the faceted knob and the dome wiggles a bit when in place. See photos as they are part of the description.
