Glass bubble bowls.
« on: March 31, 2009, 08:04:50 PM »
Hi, I bought these three bowls but they are so different from what I normally buy, I think they are by the same maker and possibly whitefriars but not sure.What age would they be? The blue one appears to have a tiny flame motif pressed into the inside under the rim, I thought at first it was just an imperfection in the glass but on closer inspection it looks too neat and pressed in. Many thanks Cheryl.

Hi Cheryl,
I think the last amber one is Whitefriars, other 2 probably Murano, Italian all circa 1960s 1970s.

i should wait for others opinions, before you are sure, as i tend to make it up as i go along!  :rn:
