Help with identification of Bubbles bowl please
« on: April 15, 2007, 08:42:49 PM »
I have two more bowls I can't identify.

The first one looked at first glance like an Arcoroc piece, but there's no Arcoroc name anywhere and it has the most wonderful ring. It's quite thin moulded (slumped?) glass, with a hint of the moulded pattern discernible to the touch on the inside, and it's 20 cms (8 inches) across the top.

Any suggestions very welcome!

I've seen the first clear, attractive bowl quite regularly for sale - often in a cobalt blue colourway.  Sometimes they turn up on the Whitefriars site with people asking if they're Whitefriars.  It's most likely a modern piece of glass.   :)

I have one of the bubble ones in the blue mentioned later above but it came with no label attached so no idea who made it. http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-717

Thanks for the replies so far.  :)

Max - I agree they are modern pieces, but they're not current modern or available in any of the shops I browse regularly. P

 Anne - your photograph of the blue one shows the bubbles more clearly than my picture. Does yours have that wonderful ring as well?

I look forward to more thoughts on these bowls.

I saw one of the cobalt blue 'bubble bowls' with a circular sticker saying 'Genuine Original Recycled Glass - Made in Spain' on it today.

Max, looking at the thread today about the blue bubble bowl, the pic in the other thread shows a different thicker-looking bowl to those Roz and I have. Can you confirm which of the blues you saw with the Spanish label please?  :)  Link to other thread: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,14292.0.html

Item 1 Bubble Bowl
I had also thought these were made by one of the many arms of the ARC International (France) empire except that I have in my notes that their items are marked with France and a number. I wonder if that is the case for more recent production and for all brands within the group. There's also a chance these days that their items may not be made in France I guess as the "International" suggests.
