This is a vintage, circa 1980’s, crystal bowl in the Gorham Althea pattern, crafted in West Germany. The bowl is decorated with alternating diamond shapes that cut around its perimeter. The bowl, itself, is of heavy crystal and illustrates superb and elegant artistry.
The measurements for the piece are: 7 1/2” diameter x 3 1/2” tall. I acquired the bowl as part of an estate, where I know it was a cabinet piece.Therefore the condition of the bowl is excellent/like new.
This is the perfect bowl to serve a salad, fruit, or vegetables; it may be used as beautiful home decor; ie., accent a cabinet or shelf, or it may be given as a wedding or anniversary gift. On the side of the bowl is the tag which bears the mark, “Full Lead Crystal, Gorham, West Germany”.
