Weekends pressed glass help - bowls
« on: October 12, 2008, 02:38:15 PM »
Ok - next is a pink bowl - I was thinking prossobly Belgian or Dutch, by the figures?  VSL?

And finally, the smoked glass bowl.  Looks a bit like the chevron pattern, would it be?

Your pink bowl is French and quite common, although we don't know who made it. See here Click on the error message to see the picture - it works honest

BTW A logical falacy in your thinking, chloe!

There are 'Dutch figures' depicted on a range of items but NONE of them are from Dutch factories!
Mostly German, like Walther's 'Hollanderin"

oops - my reply must have disappeared in the split of threads!!

Thanks for input.  Mine has a touch of damage to one handle so if they're common mineo is probably fairly worthless.  I think it's super cute so will use if for sugar or something  :)

I thought the costumes may be Flemish rather than Dutch, and am still holding onto that thought  ;)

Any ideas on the other one?  it's quite a stunning piece in the 'flesh'
