Hello, I am having trouble identifying this bowl. The signature on the base says "Tamara '76". Any help is greatly appreciated!

According to the book Scandinavian Glass Fire & Sea Tamara Aladin worked there until 1976 but this is not how her work was signed. Her work was signed "Rhiimaen Lasi O.Y. Tamara Aladin".

It is a very lovely looking bowl  :mrgreen:, maybe it is one of hers after she left?

It's beautiful. That matte base indicates studio glass to me, so perhaps she had a dabble in ariel work.

Thanks for the input - it is truly appreciated!

The bowl measures 6 1/2" wide by 3 1/2" high.

You know, I cannot answer that...I am definitely not knowledgeable about glass (I wish....)

Is the glass smooth inside and out, ie the pattern is within the glass ?

The glass is only smooth on the outside of the bowl. I can feel the pattern on the inside, so I guess the pattern is not within the glass.
