Can anyone shed any light on this = Walther
« on: September 29, 2005, 09:22:35 PM »
Hi All again,
I managed to pick up this bowl and plate set earlier on for £5.00 - can anyone age/identify it at all? The bowl is 11 inches diameter and 5 inches deep and the plate is 13 inches diameter and 1.5 inches deep. The glass is pink champagne colour - far better than in the photos. The flower design is raised and seems a lighter pink to clear glass. Any help will be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

It looks a bit like Walther glass.  :)

I'd say Walther as well... Tigerchips you beat me to it!

Current production of Walther is here... useful to look at for styles & patterns:

Mikasa is an importer/wholesaler not a manufacturer. They market some of the Walther production. Mikasa is part of the ARC International group and according to this quote form the Mikasa website they offer glassware from...
