Pressed Glass Fish Footed Bowl
« on: July 19, 2007, 06:57:39 PM »
I recently bought this bowl.  It is uranium glass and the three feet are in the shape of 'dolphin-esque' fish, with fins which spread out and merge with the 'waves' which encircle the bowl.  The bowl itself is clear and the fish are frosted glass.

Does anyone recognise it and know who the maker might be?  Thank you.

Long time no read.  ;D You could send it to me for a closer look. It rings bells but I haven't a clue which ones

inwald or reich - Leni - you do not see me envy very often, but this time  :'( congratulations!  :-* I return to you very soon about the maker, but I'm convinced others will be quicker than I am  :clap:

What an absolute beauty, Leni.  I have never seen one like it before but it's superb - I wonder what other colours it was made in?

Good to see you back on the board too - you've been quiet for too long!  ;)

There's a pink version in http://www.siegmar-geiselberger.de/aktuelles/pdf/pk-2004-3w-heinemann-sg-schale-figuren.pdf
Describes it as dolphins and waves, but sadly says the maker is unknown.
Ain't it a beaut!

Leni's pics certainly do a better job of showing off the design.

Thank you all for your help and comments.

It's actually quite a difficult piece to photograph, because all the clear glass 'waves' reflect everything around it.  Nice effect, but makes it difficult to get a clear picture.

Thanks again.
