Identification needed for Glass bowl
« on: November 12, 2007, 09:33:35 PM »
I bought this bowl from ebay on the vague feeling that it looked like a Stuart design.  Now I have it to hold I don't think it is Stuart, but I don't have any idea what it might be.  Can anyone help with a maker and an idea of the age please?

Harrach maybe, there's a vase and a bowl on p 67 Collectible Bohemian Glass 1880-1940, Truitt and Truitt that have the same wide bent green blobby things (that's a technical term  ;)  ). c 1900 and known to be Harrach.

I went googling and found this page of Harrach glass, and I see the similarity, but I am not sure   :huh:

On this page the Stuart vase 6690 is a very similar shape, but the trails are different.

Hmm, can't tell in my book if they're peacock eyes or not.

Thanks for your help :)

Does anyone else have any views on this bowl?  I can't tell if it is a lovely old piece or a modern piece.  It is nicely made, but quite light in weight.

Thanks for the links, I have read through and looked at loads of photos now :)

This one was the nearest to mine, although still not quite the same.

It does say it hasn't been attributed though.

Most of the threads discuss peacock feather trails, whereas mine look more like tadpoles ;D

I am coming around now to thinking that this might well be a Harrach bowl.  Is there anywhere I could find out for sure?  Any Harrach specialists I could email pics to?

Is there anyone who could give me an idea of the value of this bowl, as I want to resell it, but don't have any idea of what price to put on it, please?
