We are pleased to offer an exceptional vintage Heisey elegant glass punchbowl set with underplate, ladle, and cups, which was crafted in their beautiful Crystolite pattern. It is rare to find a complete set with the original underplate. Weighing nearly 7 lbs - (6lbs, 13 oz!) and measuring 18-1/2" in diameter, this massive underplate was doomed to suffer certain breakage. Mid-Century kitchens were just not conducive to displaying, washing, or storing such large heavy pieces of glass! The distinctive Heisey Crystolite pattern is comprised of large, pillar-molded ribs with smooth rounded edges and very heavy, sparkling clear glass. This elegant glass pattern was manufactured by the A. H. Heisey Company from the late 1930's to 1957, the year they closed their doors. Highly collectible, the beauty of vintage Heisey glass is attributed to their excellent glass formula, high quality raw materials and their superior finishing processes.
Except for the ladle, every piece in this vintage Heisey elegant glass Crystolite 15 piece punchbowl set is signed with the Heisey 'H in Diamond' mark on the bottom. This entire spectacular Heisey set is in excellent condition, with no cracks, chips, flea bites, stains or discolorations.
Weighing a substantial 6 lbs, 11 oz, the Heisey Crystolite punchbowl measures 11-3/4" in diameter and is 6" tall.
The Heisey Crystolite underplate - (also referred to as a torte plate, punchbowl base, or punchbowl under liner) - measures 18-1/2" in diameter, and weighs a hefty 6 lbs, 13 oz.
Each of the twelve Heisey Crystolite punch cups varies in weight from 5.3 oz to 5.9 oz. They are 2-1/4" tall, while their bowls measure 3" in diameter and 3-7/8" from rim to handle.
The Heisey Crystolite ladle measures 13" long and weighs 8 oz.
