Antique French Blue Opaline Bowl with Gold and White Hand Enameling all around the entire bowl. Such a pretty piece! The details are very precisely and beautifully hand done, this is a stunner. Opaline glass was a decorative style of glass made in France from 1700s-1890s. The popularity of opaline glass began during the reign of Napoleon.
The bowl is perfect to use as a vase for a few peonies or roses, but is exceptional displayed by itself. It has a gorgeous blue color. In good condition for its age, there is some wear to the top gilt rim, all the swags are intact.
