9 1/8 x 7 5/8 x 17 1/8 H Rectangular Glass Dome
BSA 205 Rectangular Glass Dome
A rectangular glass dome is frequently used to cover clocks and other items. They are more difficult to make and are hard to find. These are frequently sold with a footed marble base with either a raised center for the dome to fit over or a groove for the dome to sit in. Sometime the raised center is wood and is covered with velvet for a very pleasing appearance.
Most antique bases are painted black. We offer the option of covering the top and the groove with velvet which give a very nice antique look and copies the vintage of many of the original bases. We offer colors of velvet such as red, blue, green, black and antique red. The antique red is the most popular as is the black.
A good source for antique glass domes can be found in antique stores. Sometimes you find a store that has several and others who are afraid of their fragile nature and refuse to carry them. The ones who think they are fragile are willing to give a good discount just to get rid of them.
Many of the movies produced today have glass domes and antique clocks as furniture display items in the background. Once you appreciate their quality your eye will catch them in the background.
