Opal Glass Rose-Decorated Bowl by Ezan - France
« on: May 12, 2005, 01:02:26 AM »
30 years ago, I bought a lovely translucent bowl of blue opal glass  that was supposed to have been over 100 years old ($125.00 in a Florida antique shop).  It has red highlights, depending on the lighting, just like an opal.  It is marked Ezan and, in smaller lettering, France.  It is about 11" across the open side, smooth inside, and on the back it has 7 fairly large, beautifully fashioned, fully contoured roses that are raised about 3/8" above the surface of the bowl.  6 of the roses are arranged in a circle and each one is on a raised smooth triangle with the point towards the edge of the bowl.  The seventh rose in inside the raised circle of the base.  All of the surface is homogenous --- no "whitened" areas, etc.  Any ideas on the history of the piece or general value range?  Thank you.

Hi,

I wonder if it reads "Eban France" as I have just bought a lamp shade and the way the name is written the "b" does look a little like a "z" (strange I know)

Here is mine

(please excuse the toilet roll, but I have got a stinking cold, and it's my constant companion as my nose seems to have a life of its own!)

I think it looks a little like a jelly mould.

I believe it may be Art Deco in date and it seems to be a factory who copy Lalique and Sabino. It is good quality glass though.

Eban seems as obscure, can you get a picture of the mark? However, I did find this listed in French
"286  LUSTRERIE :  : vers 1930. H. : ┬▒55 cm.
Estimation : 25/35.000.-
(Euro : 620/870.-) "

Which is consistent with your piece, perhaps the Valleygal one is also related to lighting.

Can anyone translate ├ęgrenures please

The Ezan rose bowl, along with the Ezan bird bowl have recently been re-issued by the Sabino Crystal Company. New versions are signed Sabino. An example can be seen in Sabino's current online catalogue here: http://www.sabinoartglass.com/proddetail.asp?pid=223
