Brockwitz Germany Cathedral Arches Blue Stemmed Compote
This magnificent Cathedral Arches compote was obtained at a Carnival glass auction in the UK in 2004 and, as compotes go, is considered to be a giant.
This item is absolutely mint and the iridescence is incredible as with most Brockwitz items. The piece shows the quality of workmanship that Brockwitz is renowned for with its deep cut geometric stars design showing off the iridescence to its best. Brockwitz blue pieces always show a amazing array of blues, pinks, reds, and golds.
I have only seen a couple of these in blue and one in Marigold. They are very hard to come by.
It measures 9" high, 8" across the top opening, and has a 4.25" base diameter.
