GLASS FOOTED BOWLS

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on October 22, 2018

The foot on a bowl or vessel has been made almost from the beginning of glass making.  It is both decorative and functional.  In Harold Newman’s “An Illustrated Dictionary of Glass”, the definition of the foot on glass vessels takes up two full pages!  Below a few variations of this are shown.  Wherever you see a parentheses ( ) below it is an active link within this blog for additional information.
