The centerpiece bowl measures approximately 3" tall and is 9 1/4" in diameter. The bottom foot has a diameter of 3". The measurement of the flared rim are approximate as both are not perfect circles as this a hand blown piece.
This bowl displays a wonderful pinwheel pattern of iridescent pale yellow accented with a slate blue web pattern on a crystal background. This pattern is decorated on the exterior of the bowl and starts at the bottom and radiates to the outside edge. There is also texture on the exterior surface similar to Loetz' Silberiris that adds to the beauty of the bowl. There is an applied foot that is also pale translucent yellow.
This bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is also a counter sunk polished pontil. This is the finishing sign of a quality piece of art glass. The piece is signed on the bottom with the "NASH" etched mark. This centerpiece bowl has the same quality level as L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile as the Nash's were basically Tiffany Favrile.
The man that created this style of art glass worked for Tiffany Studios for many years, as did his brother and father. The A. Douglas Nash Corporation was in production from 1928 to about 1931. Douglas Nash bought the Tiffany Glass Co. in Corona from Louis C. Tiffany in 1928 with support from his father, Arthur J. Nash who had been a director at the Tiffany Glass Co. He left his studios in 1932 for employment with Libbey Glass of Toledo, Ohio. A. Douglas Nash and his father was Arthur J. Nash. Arthur Nash made some of the finest art glass that L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile ever produced. A. Douglas Nash glass is quite rare as its was only produced for a few years. This centerpiece bowl was made circa 1928-1932.
