When I first began collecting cranberry glass,
I recall how beautiful I thought these " Victorian Bride's Baskets " or
Bride's Bowls were.
They are called that because it was popular to get them as them as wedding gifts in the late 1800's to about 1905.
Now, this one I have here I kind of just put the pieces together to make a basket for myself.
Each of the two pieces were separate finds of mine along my antique hunting journey.
I have several glass bride's bowls of different colors.
But the brides basket itself does date back to the turn of the 19th century.
