Item: BOWL / FRUIT VASE (height 21 cm - diameter 24 cm) , CASED CRYSTAL / CUT TO CLEAR OVERLAY CRYSTAL, PURPLE, New. Material: cased crystal (24% lead oxide) Height: 205 mm (8.1") Diameter: 240 mm (9.4") BRAND: GUS-KHRUSTALNY, Russia. This is the finest Russian cut to clear overlay/ cased lead crystal, hand-cut and mouth-blown.It is a huge vase and heavy item. Colour is DARK PURPLE, stunning, light is playing perfectly with purple sparkles; but it is very hard to take good pictures: everything looks black and not bright. At least we tried to show the bowl in different lights. Cased crystal items look much better in reality than in photos, because photos do not show light playing through overlay and cuts.
