Ivo:
A long standing mystery

http://tinypic.com/ac8o6c.jpg

Starfish bowl 10"across, 2 ladies (1 crawl, one backstroke) and a variety of marine life. The colour is straw and the outside marigold iridised. It is embossed "Made in Germany" on the underside of one of the handles.

So far not a clue. I don't even know if it counts as carnival.

Connie:
Ivo -

I have no clue as to the maker but I am anxious to find out.  I love the bowl.  My daughter is a competitive swimmer and her 2 best strokes are freestyle and backstroke  :lol:

Glen:
Ivo - I would certainly class it as Carnival (albeit probably more recent).

I have seen handles exactly like that on another (unknown) piece. Hhmm, that doesn't help, does it?  :roll:

Thinking aloud, it also reminds me of a pattern known as Art Deco that has been found in the form of a little cream jug, bearing a red sticker that reads:

JRIS

and on another gold label above the JRIS,
Made in Germany US Zone.

Any ideas on JRIS?

Glen

Anne:
Glen, just thinking aloud... could it be IRIS rather than JRIS? The two letters are sometimes hard to tell apart if script and/or used interchangeably.

Never heard of Jris - but at the very least we can now exclude manufacturers in Saarland (French zone) and in Saxony (Soviet zone). The US zone was established in Bavaria - including the Bavarian glassmaking region around Zwiesel - in Hessen and in Baden-W├╝rttemberg. The other major glassmaking area of Th├╝ringen was only in the uS zone for three months in 1945 before it was passed on the the soviets.
