A Folk Art Primitive Pedestal Dish of vintage milk glass bonded to a worn chrome plated ‘turned’ brass stem threaded rod, bolted to a black marbleized base.
The milk glass Thumbprint dish by Anchor Hocking is from around the 1950’s. It’s bonded to a brass machined stem that’s been chromed. The chrome is wearing off in spots showing the brass underlay. This stem shaft than is bolted into the base material which has the appearance of black marble. The base appears to be of stone but has a slight semi-etched surface, so maybe of a stone powered resin mix.
Possibly made in entirety around the 1970s-‘80s, due to material viewed and condition.
It has been cleaned some, including oxidation at the bottom base’s attachment point, where threads and retaining nut are located, than coated to prevent further oxidizing.
Product Quantity: Only 1 item in stock.
Condition: Very Good, folk art made from everyday things we see … simple and not always a strived for perfect.
This Anchor Hocking Thumbprint milk glass dish is similar to when new and being that it’s attached to the base by a resin/ epoxy bond, it likely could be dissolved and the plate rescued without harm…
…or of course left as it is being offered here, since it’s obviously an attractive looking pedestal dish.
