Cream fused glass bowl with print from Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing vintage edition


Fused glass bowl made from cream coloured glass, about 29cm (a bit less than 12 inches) diameter. The design fired onto the surface is some of the text of Much Ado About Nothing, taken from an 1840s edition of the complete works of Shakespeare.

The bowl's fairly shallow, and is the right sort of size to use as a fruit bowl or a serving dish. Or you could just stand it up on a shelf because it's pretty.

I can also make something similar in smaller sizes, or with text from different plays.

I'm not advertising this particular piece for sending abroad, because of the size. The cost would end up being higher than the bowl itself, as it would need lots of packaging to keep it safe. If you're really keen though, send me a message and I'll find out what the cost would be to your country.
