only part of a Uranium bowl??
« on: July 31, 2009, 06:13:53 PM »
I've become a little more choosey when picking up uranium  -  but this was only a quid at the B.S. - and I was intrigued to know exactly what it is that is missing.  Is it a flower frog  -  a semi-clad maiden  -  or what.   Will probably give it away shortly as things like this take up some much room.
Three Art Deco looking feet, so wud imagine 1930's, and it glows well under the torch  -  regrettably no Reg. No.     Sizes are:  30.5 cms. wide and about 9 cms. high, with a central circular depression about 4 cms. deep (and this has an outer flange/rim).   The inside of the bowl has a high gloss finish.     Any comments will be appreciated.    Many thanks for looking.        Paul S.

hello Paul,
you´re absolutely right. it´s a Walther ´Pelikan´ bowl without --- ´Pelikan´.
see Pamela´s site under ´Figuren und Tafelaufsätze´, scroll down to ´Walther´.

and her other site glas-musterbuch, of course:

thanks Dirk  -  I really did think someone was going to say it was one of those partly robed women that come in that slightly frosted finish  -  but a Pelican no less, well, I'll go to the foot of our stairs mother.   So all I need now is the Pelican -  anyone got a bucket of fish!!  appreciate you comments, but don' imagine I will find the bird in a million years.      thanks    Paul S.

Arabella also fits nicely in it if you find her with the right base; not the all in one base as in the first picture but with the separate flower hole part

thank you Christine  -  very much appreciate you suggestion.  Perhaps I will now put the bowl in moth-balls and keep a lookout for Arabella.    You have some very nice looking uranium glass by the way.  When I first started collecting Uranium I picked up everything I cud find  -  but as you will know, once you start looking it seems to be everywhere, so now I have to try and be a little more circumspect about what I buy.    Kind regards       Paul S.
