Can anyone shed any light on this = Walther
« on: September 29, 2005, 09:22:35 PM »
Hi All again,
I managed to pick up this bowl and plate set earlier on for £5.00 - can anyone age/identify it at all? The bowl is 11 inches diameter and 5 inches deep and the plate is 13 inches diameter and 1.5 inches deep. The glass is pink champagne colour - far better than in the photos. The flower design is raised and seems a lighter pink to clear glass. Any help will be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

It looks a bit like Walther glass.  :)

I'd say Walther as well... Tigerchips you beat me to it!

Current production of Walther is here... useful to look at for styles & patterns:
Mikasa is an importer/wholesaler not a manufacturer. They market some of the Walther production. Mikasa is part of the ARC International group and according to this quote form the Mikasa website they offer glassware from...  
The world's finest tabletop designers, working with the best factories,

The full story of what they do can be found on the main US Mikasa website here: and follow the links for About Mikasa > Mikasa Story. They also have an International website here:
