This ruby overlay diamond optic bowl has splendid coloration and picks up light beautifully. It is about 10 ¾” across and about 4” tall at the widest ruffle. The ruffles are beautifully formed and perfectly characterized for this age piece. This bowl was produced by Fenton 1942-1949. There is a small bit of heavily pigmented glass on one of the ruffles. This is totally normal for 1940s handmade glass. I have photographed it for you.
Ruby overlay was later renamed cranberry, but the 1940s variety is still referred to as ruby overlay. I have 2 of these bowls, which will be listed separately. They would look beautiful as a pair, though! If you are interested in both, let me know and I’d be happy to offer a discount for the pair. I have many other pieces in this color (the 1940s and newer era) that I haven’t listed yet. Inquire if you are looking for any specific shape.
The bowl is in excellent condition with no damage. I apologize for the glare from my iPhone camera! I check my items visually and I feel them with my fingers to check for chips. I ship on Saturdays.

I have been a dealer of antique and collectable glass for over 10 years locally at vendor malls and online. I have collected far longer than that! I am experienced and identify my items with care. I will describe them to the best of my ability with condition noted. Locally I've had the same customers for years and sell special pieces to other dealers.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns so that I can help! I always accept returns in the event of seller error.
