Complex, intricate cuts cover the entire surface of this stunning cut glass basket featuring the exotic Persian variation of the Russian pattern. American Brilliant Period cut glass won world acclaim in the 19th and 20th centuries, recognized for its superiority and advanced glass-making methods. Cut glass is glass that has been decorated entirely by hand, making it extremely expensive and out of reach to all but the affluent class. It thus became a symbol of elegance and leisure, and demand for beautiful glass products spurred intense competition and creativity within the industry.
