Hi Saw a piece of pressed glass today in a book i am reading to gen up on Glass in general, it is the same colour as this bowl, and it was called Rubine a bright red from Sowerby's factory (c 1920 ) but it was square in shape, saying it is worth ten times as much as the same shape in amber or colourless glass,

Not wanting to rain on your party but I have the feeling it is a Tazza from one of the pressed glass ranges from Stiver of Italy; these have been in production since the sixties and were made in every conceivable colour.

From wikipedia,

'A tazza is a shallow saucer-like dish either mounted on a stem and foot or on a foot alone. The word has been generally adopted by archaeologists and connoisseurs for a type of drinking vessel. It is the Italian translation of Cup'

Ivo — Thanks for that.   I've always supposed that they might be late C20 American, so I got that wrong.   A Stiver catalogue could be useful in identifying a number of old style mysteries in circulation.   Do you know the whereabouts of one?

ehrm - yes. I've been hoarding one for years but I know it is not complete, it only lists the models which were in production in 1999. I talked to the sales manager a few years ago and he explained that they have been making this type of glass for 40 years, and there was no limit to the colours they used. This ranges from solid black, to all opaque colours, but also clear and tinted. So if you ask, did you make this in light blue, or in amethyst, or in bottle brown, the answer would always be yes.

I could try and photograph a few pages, the 'puter which operates the scanner has broken down. This is by the way the third computer on XP which broke down, I've heard nothing but crash stories these last week - is Bill gates busy blowing up all XP machines to sell more vista?

Interesting, Ivo, that you mentioned black.   There is a similar tazza, always in black, with slightly taller proportions and a wavy edge, to be found, again with little or no base wear, probably from the same stable.
