Unusual Persian Medallion Celery Dish
This is a particularly well-cut celery dish. Unfortunately, it’s on a figured blank and thusly, the quality of glass is not as good as most of the pieces on Criticalglass.com.
The center part of the pattern consists of a cross of 4 bands of crosshatching. Richly cut hobstars adorn the outer perimeter of the celery and bands of hobnail topped with hobstars contorts to the rest of the pattern. The main draw to this pattern are two medallions of DEEP Persian cutting. The cutting is so deep that the relief leaves large knob where the hobstars are.
Unfortunately, this piece is not in perfect condition – the Persian medallions have a fair amount of roughness and there is one small flake to the rim. The celery measures 11 ½” long, 5 ½” wide and 2” tall.
