Blue pressed glass powder bowl
« on: April 06, 2009, 03:38:47 AM »
This one has me baffled. I've only seen it once before (in pink on eBay with matching candlesticks and a Sowerby tray which was a pretty good colour match.)

The base is polished shiny like Inwald items, with a star cut pattern in its centre. The edges of the base are bevelled to the bottom of the pot sides - you can just see the bevels on the photo below.

I stood this alongside a pot made at Libochovice and it's not the same blue, neither does it match the Bagley or Sowerby blues I have. Can anyone suggest the maker please?

Yes Anne, I noticed your request, but unfortunately: so far no idea at all I'm afraid  :cry:
Perhaps you may try another photo versus an angle, please? and base?

Thanks Pamela, I'll do that.   :kissy:    (I wasn't hustling you but as there's been so many posts I thought it'd maybe disappeared way down the page before you'd seen it - I think I posted it whilst you were away. )  :-[

It has me totally baffled too Pamela, it's beautifully made and finished. It stopped me in my tracks when I spotted it for sale. But I can't find it anywhere yet - there must be a LOT of catalogues out there somewhere we've not discovered methinks as my mystery pile is getting bigger by the day!  :cry: Still it gives me something to do huh?   :24:

Hi Anne -

Is it me, or does it look like it goes from a Blue to a light Purple color?  Might it be the glass that changes color in different light.  I forget the word (neodymiium) or something like that....lol :spls:

Your pics seem to show 2 different colors there -- but then I do need New glasses here  ;D

Maybe if it is, that will help the direction to look -- or at least when googling.

Added:  Could it, or might it be a Sugar Bowl (lidded) as I have seen sugar bowls without handles too.  So just wondering IF that could be a possibility too..................if not, I can go bury My head  :spls: ;)

:fwr: Rose

Nope, it's blue all the way through Rose. The colour is closest to the pic at the top of the topic. The later pics are suffering from the light in use when they were taken, but they show the shape and pattern better. It's a gorgeous strong bright blue throughout.
