Absolutely beautiful French Opaline “Tazza” or Pedestal Dish. Tazza is a wide but shallow saucer-like dish either mounted on a stem and foot or on a foot alone. This type of vessel can be used to serve small items of food, or just for display.
Blue upper has a smooth interior finish with a gilt gold painted star in the interior center. Gilt gold painted scalloped edges add even more beauty to the upper part of the dish. The pedestal is a white satin french glass with gilt gold detailing. This is quite a beautiful statement piece on its own, or mix and match with blue and white Opaline!
Dimensions: 5.5″Diameter x 5.5″H
Condition Notes: Excellent Antique Condition. There is wear to the frosted exterior finish and the gilt gold detailing to be expected with age. There are some permanent hairline scratch marks to the exterior frosted finish. The Opaline interior is in wonderful condition. There is slight wear to the gilt gold start in the interior. There are no chips, cracks or repairs.
