It is lovely and in good vintage condition. The over all appearance is beautiful, clear and sparkling The pedestal has a hair line crack and the sawtooth edge of the bowl has a few chips that are difficult to see but can be found by running your finger along the edge. Please look carefully at the pictures, the damage is difficult to see in the pictures. None of these small chips take away from the stunning beauty of this item. I have used it for many years and no one has ever noticed.The bowl is 14 in. Across and 7 1/4 in. The base is 8 1/2 in.
Wide and 5 1/2 in. Together they stand 11 1/2 in. This will be an incredible center piece at any holiday or party.
