Sowerby Float Bowl and Frog
« on: September 11, 2015, 04:31:08 AM »
I am looking to identify my float bowl. It is satin amber glass..base measures 19cm in diameter. it is 7cm high and has a 12cm diameter frog with 19 holes. It has a raised imprint RD 813115. I have done some research on the number and think it denotes Sowerby 1936. The problem is I can't find anyone to confirm this is correct, nor can I find another with which to compare. Can anyone help please.

Welcome to the board. Can we have a picture on a plain white background without reflections, as it's very difficult to see what you have. Another picture of both parts would be good too please

Edited to add A bit of searching reveals you are right,29469.0.html
