Vintage Purple Glass Bowl
Vintage purple glass footed bowl
This gorgeous vintage glass bowl was picked in Leadville, Colorado. I acquired this piece of glass from a local who came from 4 generations of miners that had lived in Leadville. According to her, the bowl was made in Leadville during the turn of the century. This particular type of glass is called sun glass, as the exposure to sunlight has given it its purple hue. Depending on the presence of different types of metal, glass will take on certain colors. This particular bowl likely has a mixture of manganese. If you continue to leave this bowl in sunlight, it will continue to darken. The details on this bowl are very ornate. It's pretty to look at even when it's empty! Due to the age and use of this bowl, I would primarily use it for display (and not for serving food). It would make a wonderful candy dish, or a place to stash your keys and wallet. It would also be gorgeous all by itself near a window so it can glow. Make it your own!
