We have many of the catalogues scanned now, just a matter of time to upload all the Art Glass.

The bottle with flowers is a different range, and I do not think your bowl is Xanadu either, Christine - similar though.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

There are images of 3 Xanadu bottles in Lesley Jackson's 20th Century Factory Glass, p.49. They have heat finished rims and seem to be 3, 4 or 6 sided. The pattern also seem to be more "crudely" put together - although my opinion is that this is deliberate - primitive might be a better word than crude.
I've had this book a long time, I really like the Xanadu bottles and have been on the look-out for one for as long as I've had the book. No luck so far.

Not something I've seen round here either Sue, despite seeing a lot of Caithness locally.

It's obviously along the same lines as Xanadu though. My bowl is surprising complex. A clear gather has been rolled in what looks like a blue and white frit mix, then it's been cased in clear, and then the top two-thirds has been rolled in white frit.Then the top two-thirds has been rolled in blue frit and the bottom third in purple (there's no white under most of the purple, because I can see a bit of it through the base where the first frit coating is a bit thin). Finally it's been strapped in green, the strapping has been marvered in and the purple area has been smoothed. (or something like that)

One of my great pleasures in the world of glass is hearing collectors talking about how their pieces have been made and that can be very difficult with a subject as varied as glassmaking - not to mention the three dimensional process that results in a seemingly simple yet practically complex final effects. Having collected metals, stamps, ceramics and glass, I find coloured glass the most satisfying simply because of the complexity of combining the shaping and decoration as an integrated process.
