Newbie´s small uranium collection
« on: October 07, 2008, 09:44:21 AM »
hello there!

i found rummaging in your galleries so very entertaining!
on that account i´ve started to post some of my favourite
pieces on GG, left open some depression glass you can
allready find on other well-known sites.  ;)
my apologies for the lack of information given on the objects!
i´ve only just started and spent the last 1-2 years simply
collecting what i like.
perhaps i should start a new topic now and then with one of
the pieces?
having no one around here to share these pieces personally i
hope sharing them here virtually will be appreciated!

Are the spirals in the green bowl formed from bubbles?

The square footed salt is superb. Looks like circa 1850, either Belgium of England.

the pattern is formed by tiny silverish particles partially accompanied by bubbles.
they are close to the inward surface.
when i said i thought about posting a piece, this would have actually been the first. :lol:
i´ve seen them pop up on ebay germany thrice again since i bought mine, sometimes
described as leerdam (they should be signed then, shouldn´t they?) or WMF (don´t have
a reference for that either). last time i saw it there it was a clear version.
i think i read in a topic, you´ve got some 30´s WMF catalogues?

goedemiddag Ivo!

a bit large for a salt, i´d say. it´s diameter is 11,5 cm; height 10,5.
so rather a small centerpiece?

 ;D ;D ;D

however, glad i was thinking the same way regarding the time.
is there an english term for the decoration, something like
"zweites rokoko" in german?
