Ariel bowl - I almost recognise it.
« on: March 08, 2009, 06:24:16 PM »
Thickwalled crystal bowl height 7,5 diameter 11 (2"and 4.1/4" respectively) with air inclusions. The finish is impeccable, but the maker carelessly forgot to sign it.  The pattern seems to be dots, dashes, colons and semicolons - which leaves me with a question mark. Anyone seen this before?

Not saying it's from the same stable, but when you said you almost recognised it were you maybe thinking of these discussions ?

Thank you Gareth! That is a very close match - it does look as if our bowls are from the same stable  :hiclp: . Here is a close-up of the underside. It looks to me as if the same tools were used for making the pattern...
