Primary Description: 
Vessel, "Scallop Goblet". Transparent pink, yellow, colorless, and dark amber glasses; optic-molded, blown, applied. Vessel in the form of a goblet with a shallow transparent pink cup with raised fins (mezzo stampo), a two-part stem consisting of a colorless hot-worked element joined to a transparent pink scallop shell, and an elongated transparent yellow optic-molded foot with flared and faceted octagonal bottom edge. Thin applied thread applied just below rim of cup, suggesting that it might support a cover. Two dark amber raspberry prunts applied to hot-worked stem element.
