Hi there
This one is driving me mad today as i know ive seen this before but now cant find the little wotsit.. Im pretty sure it should have a black plinth to it??
although maybe its the wrong dish, although i dont think it is. :-\
can anybody tell me any details for this, ie age, where its from and approx value or a nudge in the right direction, also which book is it in as ive searched mine about 5 times each and i know its in one of them  ::)
Boy riding a fish on the frog with frosted pattern bowl in green uranium glass
bowl 27cms in diameter 7cms tall, including boy around 22cms tall.
many thanks
michelle

Michelle, have you looked through this site: http://www.black-poppy.co.uk/ - I seem to recall they had one of these a while ago...

Another unknown maybe Czech, maybe German (perhaps Mueller). Pamela has two here in different bowls http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/tafelaufsaetze/tafelaufsaetze.html , scroll right down. I also think Nigel has this one. If the bowl colour matches I would say it was OK. I think these things were often sold mix and match.

Hi
Christine is right it could be Czech or possib ly Mueller.It sometimes comes in a large bowl with frosted leaves and also a large bowl with a pond theme.Strange thing is the leaf bowl I have also seem with the Mueller lady in it,think it was also the same maker as the girl on tortoise I used to have.Mix and match that Christine mentions is also a maybe,the bowl you have it in also came on top of the lady with column/Cherubs or with the September morn girl and flower frog.
Many thanks!

Hi there
many thanks for all your input. I think this maybe a mix as ive seen the bowl on its own and ID as Walther? but never a def on the boy/fish. The boy frog is completely frosted and the bowl is part frosted part not, but where the bowl is frosted it has a textured effect and all be it very similar i think the colour is ever so slightly different..not enough to notice easily but just slightly, still look good together though.
thanks again
michelle

I don't think the bowl is Walther, the base looks wrong and the colour doesn't look quite right. A mix of part frosted and frosted is OK too.
