Venetian Rose Bowl
« on: February 26, 2008, 06:04:43 PM »
I bought this old rose bowl a while back. The piece is very heavy, weighing in at 4 lb 1 oz (2 kg). It is 7.5" tall. The glass looks a lot like Burmese, but I think the glass may be thick lattimo with color added. I have found a couple of things that vaguely resemble the rose bowl, but I am really no closer to finding a maker than I was when I bought it. Does anyone have any ideas? TIA! The first picture looks a little darker than the piece actually does. The second picture of the bottom shows the cream color of the bottom better.

The piece is not cased. It looks like the glassmaker wanted to make the glass resemble clay.

That is really gorgeous...Looks like raspberry sorbet! Are you sure it's Venetian? It looks to me like it could be English, American, or Bohemian glass form around the turn of the century.

Do you think the color would be considered peachblow? Looks like it a color range that varies considerably...

I'm pretty sure it is Venetian. The glass is way to thick and heavy for Bohemian or English. The combed-cane legs were popular in Murano. It is closer to Burmese than peach blow. Most of the peach blow I have seen has been thin with a white inlay. This vase is as thick as a pottery pot.

It shares a lot of its design features with rose bowls by Stevens & Williams, except the S&W vases are dainty. It may be that someone was making a rose bowl to look like it was Venetian, but I have a feeling that it is Venetian.

Hope someone will have an idea who made this type of glass,

Anything peachblow and overornamented just screams "Fenton" at me. I would think an Italian attribution is highly unlikely.

Shandiane, I checked some of the peachblow rose bowls and think you might be right. Many of them are heavier and dark inside. Thanks for the new thoughts on the bowl. Maybe looking at peachblow will lead to something.

Ivo, thanks for the Fenton suggestion. I don't get a Fenton feel for the piece, but they did do a variety of things. I will have to look more at the North American companies. It is nice to get some new ideas. I had reached a dead end in my search.

I agree it doesn't look like Fenton. I do think it could be North American though.

I ran across some Gunderson Pairpoint glass that looks very similar. I haven't found anything with the applied leaves yet, though. Still looking...

I found a Gunderson Pairpoint bowl on eBay (item 250219101118) that has similar glass and the same raspberry prunt on bottom. I have a feeling it is what my bowl is. Thank you, shandianne and Ivo, for pointing me in the right direction. I think we have an ID now.

That's great! If you want to get some good informed opinons, there's at least one member on the Ebay pottery and glass board who might be able to confirm your ID, or give some more possibilities. Her name is Kristi "krsilber". It's a gorgeous piece!
