Art Deco ice-men frosted glass bowl and frog with gnomes
« on: January 06, 2009, 02:18:08 PM »
Hi everyone hope you all had a great new year! Im on here again hoping to pick someones brains(Ive had to leave my brain alone to let it heal!) Ive just aquired this rally unusual bowl and centrepiece frog.The main bowl has dwarves with long beards picking through an icey cavern with axes,and the centrepiece is a large beaker shaped piece again with the icey rocks and 3 gnomes holding on to the sides looking up! I have seen there is also another piece that should go in the frog(sadly I do not have it) Does anyone know any clues to maker/origins? I would be most grateful,thankyou so much!

Nige, Anja bought from a lady in Dresden, who said Teplitz / Teplice/Bohemia. Yes, she has got a frog with it, but we feel it's a marriage. Photos to follow soon. (I was so sure I had them, but cannot find again) Thank you, RĂ¼diger, if doing that the weekend to come  :thup:

What a fantastic item I do hope you get an identification soon.I would have a guess at America or Canada perhaps totally wrong.How do the people here feel about leaning towards Burlington glass of Onterio or Sandwich glass of Boston Mass c 1870s.Kind regards,Kay.
