Mystery blue pressed bowl, possibly mainland European?

"Heads-up" means an alert or calling attention to an event, item, situation etc.

I understood perfectly what Glen meant and it never occurred to me that it was an Americanism.

It is funny how after being a member of this board I catch myself using phrases that are un-American.

Most members here say "no joy" when you haven't found something.  Most Americans would say they had "no luck" but I now catch myself saying "no joy"   :lol:

There is also another pecularity I see regularly on this board between English English speakers and American English and it is a difference in grammar.  The most notable difference to me is whether you consider a company like TKMaxx or TJMaxx a singluar or plural proper noun.  How can we all speak English but be so different   :lol:

I saw another example of this fine quality bowl a few days ago in a really nice light amber.   Sadly it was badly damaged, otherwise I would have started a collection!

It's nearly six years since my original attribution query with no real progress other than it's not Australian (thanks Cathy).   Any ideas?

Cathy — Thanks.   Can New Zealand be eliminated?

VEB Saschenglas (aka post-war Walther)? It has that post-war sort of Walther blue in a pre-War (Art Deco) design. American?

    Pamela — That's fantastic.   Is the catalogue page only available to Siegmar's paid up subscribers?   I'm amazed that such a high quality example of pressed glass comes from a factory that I've never heard of — and I wouldn't know where to start looking on a map!

Is 5¾ years a record for an attribution on the GMB?   It could have been less had I taken Cathy's advice.  :spls:

Grateful thanks,

Bernard, yes, only available to subscribers I'm afraid

http://www.pressglas-korrespondenz.de/archiv/pdf/pk-2008-1-05w-mb-stolle-niemen-1923.pdf

Glen and Steven Mosquito are subscribers too, perhaps they have a look at the catalogue for confirmation ?

Bernard, when you now see the following - is yours perhaps marked also?

pressed mark HEMAH here:

http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/tafelaufsaetze/02528.html

http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/tafelaufsaetze/02139.html

Steven is said to have a vase also, and this mark is found on insulators too

Hope this helps  :D

Pamela — No, it's not marked, but it might have been.   What happened to Niemen's moulds when they closed in 1945 (Haanstra, but that may be an approximation) or stopped fancy glass production?   Beautifully designed, they would have had significant commercial value, and be quite attractive to the likes of Walther.   A buyer would have removed any marks.

That blue looks post-war to me, but I have little experience of mainland European pressed glass.   What do you think?
