Anne,
Last time I was in Paeroa (probably October) there was a most beautiful bright blue one of these bowls for sale at one of the junk shops.
Unfortunately I had spent all my pocket money!
Cheers
Meegs

Hi Meegs and Anne
I was in Paeroa with my wife today Friday 20/01/2012 The blue bowl is still there a real beauty but at $120 I left it there (it is about 20cm in diameter)

Thanks Anne. There is a used copy for auction with 4 days to go, so I have put it on my watch list for now

Tony, I can't remember the name of that shop, but it is a collective of various dealers with a manager so it does make trying to negotiate the price difficult. The bowl is a beauty, and it is a shame that the price is off putting as the longer it sits there the more likely it is to get damaged; as was a fair amount of the glass stock in there when I was last in the shop.  Did you go into Akwrights(?) further down the road on the corner? There are several examples of Bagley's Andromeda at NZD450 a pop.
Hope you enjoyed your day.
Cheers

Hi Meegs
The shop is called The Depot. yes we have been going to Akwrights and all the other shops for many years, have had some good buys, lots I would like both for my collection or resale I am also a Licensed Dealer, but the prices.!!

One thing that makes me mad is a nice piece with no description or something ridiculous like "Depression" glass  and a crazy price.

It's lovely and I'm positively green. But surely those dolphins are inspired by japanese images koi carp? It's quite a common art deco motif.

I agree!  I started this thread with the title "Pressed Glass Fish Footed Bowl", and then described the fish as 'dolphin-esque', because I had always previously seen similar footed bowls described as 'Diving Dolphins' bowls.  But these feet are definitely very fishy!  ;D

Here is this lovely bowl in blue. I was rather delighted to find this  undamaged example this week having resisted the urge to buy the above mentioned one
(... and yes I dyed the roses to match)

Cheers

Well done, Meegs - it's such a splendid design and a most convincing proof for the beauty of pressed glass!  :-*
