Four mystery pressed glass bowls.

(1/3) > >>

Anne E.B.:
I've trawled through quite a few links/sites and haven't been able to identify these four dishes/bowls :shock: , so any help would be much appreciated as usual.

#1. Red bowl which looks stunning in a well lit area.

#3. Blue bowl shaped like a canoe.

#4. Clear glass dish/bowl with wavy edge.

It would be really nice if #4 turned out to have actually been made in Manchester.  I've only just discovered four glass makers that operated in Manchester (Salford and Ancoats areas) in the late 19th and early 20th century, i.e. Birtles Tate, James Derbyshire & Sons, Percival Vickers and Thomas Kidd & Co.  So to have a piece made locally would be terrific.   So here's hoping :lol:

Glen:
1 and 3 are both Sowerby (sorry, I know, wrong side of the Pennines).

The red one is their #2411 - known to Carnival collectors as Hobstar and Cut Triangles.

The blue "canoe" is Sowerby's #2480 - named by Carnival collectors as English Hobstar.

I am sure I've seen the vaseline bowl (2) pattern before but I can't name it without checking through archives etc. The final piece (4) is not one I am familiar with.

Sorry they're not Manchester Glass, Anne! (Incidentally, if you haven't seen the piece on my website about Josef Rindskopf then you really should. It has some fascinating Manchester information in it. I won't say any more or it will spoil the surprise!)

Wow!  Fascinating reading Glen :P (in fact I'm going to go back and read it again -  its so interesting) and thank you so much for identifying two of the pieces. :lol:

Regards Anne E.B. :wink:

Tigerchips:
The second one I'm fairly sure is Sowerby.

I just happened to find this post while I was looking for something else.  :lol:

Anne E.B.:
You are right Tigger - later ID'd  as Sowerby flanged bowl no.2596 which came with a separate handle (Thistlewood & Thistlewood Vol.1 Victoria to George V):P
