This powder bowl in green glass glows under a black light, and has a chromed mirror-bright screw on lid, so I'm guessing it's not that old - perhaps 1950s, would that be about right?  Any ideas who may have made it please?

Hi Anne,
no ideas, but could easily be 1930s when Chrome was also popular.
 
Cheers,
Andy

Have now also seen this pot in blue glass with a chrome lid with patterned insert.  Still no idea of maker though. :cry:

Would appreciate a top view, Anne   :)

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

The lid of your box isn´t decorated like this one, Anne?

The lid of mine is completely plain chrome, with no indication that anything was ever there. The blue one I saw had an insert of that type Dirk, but with a different design.

Pamela, this is the only shot I have found with the bottom visible - it's completely plain. I'll do some pics of the base as well and add them later.
