Green (or green grey) triangular dish
« on: July 11, 2008, 02:42:33 PM »
I thought this might be Whitfriars because I have a vase the same shade which was ID'd on Is it Whitefriars? but I can't find it in the catalogues, and the base seems wrong for W/f as well. It's a well-type like the Sklo Union birdbath bases. Does anyone recognise it please?

Oops! forgot to add the size: 5" across at widest parts, 2" high (or 127mm and 51mm for metricated people.)

it is a well known dish which comes in many colours (blue, pink). It looks like Sklo Union, but Marcus has not been able to identify it yet - so it could be Weisswasser or Polish too.

Hi
still unable to post photos  :-[ but very pleased to be able to join in on something at last  :hiclp: although not with anything helpful  sadly,  but I have two of these in amber.  Both slightly different though, one a paler amber and with 'flat' edges and the other with a ridged edge round the top and a darker prettier amber.

Randsfjordglass displays a heavily indented bottom like this on at least one item.  Not sure if that's really any help!   :huh:  Thought I'd throw it into the mix anyway.  See Page 135 Fire & Sea emerald cased bowl.

Hi Flying Free, can you add pics of yours as well please so we can see the colours? :)

Max, thanks for that - mine isn't cased so maybe not the same origins. I don't (yet) have Fire & Sea (another one for the wishlist!), but thanks for the reference.  :)

one picture of same item in grey; I think I also have it in purple and in light blue. It is unlikely to be Randsfjord; we see this bowl quite regularly on the markets and it must have enjoyed a considerable distribution at the time. Which points at Sklo Union, Poland or Weisswasser.

eek - am incapable of posting pics - techno dinosaur and very embarrassed - so sorry
... the slightly paler amber one looks I think just like the one you posted.  Has a flat edge round the top as yours seems to?, the darker amber (only slightly darker but it definitely is) has the one 'ridge' running round the top edge.  The bottom is heavily indented on both but when you look down into the bowl the rings you see are different.  They are not cased and am sure they are the same as yours.  Once I get my act together and have more time I will try and post some pics.

No worries, it's not urgent. :)  We do have a help and how to post for posting pics to the board - you might find that useful for when you want to give it a try. Or if you get totally stuck you can always shout for help and one of us will come & rescue you. :)

thank you Anne.  I'm trying not to be a pain   :-[  hence my reticence on asking anyone else to post them for me (after Christine very kindly posted the candleholder) and I do recognise that I am unlikely to get any assistance on the two pieces I am desperate to learn more about unless I LEARN to do this ;D.
