Hi: Any writing on the bottom? I ask because it looks something like a Holmegaard bowl by Per Lutken, which are usually signed. Another clue would be the section of the bowl on the bottom of the inside. Is there a little mound of glass there, as that would be another clue? Also, I can't quite make out if the rim is clear or white.

In any case, it looks very Scandinavian to me, although it could be a number of different companies.

Definitely not Holmegaard. Can't really help any further on this, though, sorry.

Hi David
            No writing in the base and the rim is clear, very thick though,

Well, at least we know it's not  Holmegaard. That means it could be a number of Scandinavian companies. It looks like good quality, so it's one of those pieces that you admire but never fully understand. I have a slimmer version in a very similar shade of blue, btw, that looks more Flygsfors than this one.

Does anyone think it is a relative of mine which was discussed here?

It looks like Magnor, they didn't sign items on any consitant basis so a lack of signature shouldn't worry you.
These are pretty common around here (Norway), adding to the confusion Hadeland made similar pieces
in the same colorway and the swedish companies just across the border did too.

Hadeland would usually be signed and I'm not sure they did this shape.

If your bowl matches Sue's I'd say a Magnor attribution was in order.

I'd like to add that your bowl seems a bit more "squshed" up, not as smooth a curve
along the length of the piece, this could mean a Swedish origin.
But that could just be the pictures fooling me.

Bayel, France used to make these in huge quantities in the 1960s and they still turn up on every market; but in recent years they have been outdone by Ikea.
