Glass lady
« on: September 16, 2007, 03:33:40 PM »
Hi  this is my latest car boot find, she is 10 inches tall, but I can't find any info who made her or even what its for. Any ideas and is she collectable? I just liked the look of her, apart from one very tiny nibble shes in lovely condition, been in a roof for a long time according to the seller.

Thank you, Cheryl.

I don't know this particular lady, so can't tell you if she is modern or older.  However, it does rather look as if she is intended to be a support for a bowl.  I have a quite well known continental stand in frosted blue of 4 cherubs with a  similar top, which should hold a bowl.  I can't remember the make at the moment & can't find my notes, unfortunately.  As to whether or not yours is collectable ... that is upto you & whether or not you like her!  If you meant saleable then yes, you'll need a pedigree.  I hope someone else will be able to give you more information.

Thanks for the reply,  I have found the exact one on Black poppys site in blue and pink, but they have no makers name, you are right it is a bowl stand, it shows two different bowls, and its called a comport stand. I bought her just because she stood out as a lovely piece of glass, I will keep her, the lady that sold her was quite old herself and she said it belonged to her mother and was from the 1930s. cheryl

I would say she is almost certainly from the 1930s and she is possibly in uranium glass. She is almost certainly worth more than you paid for her even without a bowl and a manufacturer. Good quality female figures seem quite desirable even without all their bits

Hi, I paid £10 for her, my husband thought I was mad paying that much but I thought she was lovely so I bought her anyway!! I'm sure I've got a bargain,but if I'm keeping her I don't suppose it matters much what shes worth. cheryl.
