Czechoslovakia bowl - who and when?
« on: August 26, 2009, 05:25:46 PM »
Bonsoir from France here is a bowl that hubby hates but I like - is it a market special as he says.  I purchased it in France for next to nothing.  Is there an age or is it modern tat?

Hi Pain:

It's not my style of glass, and I haven't a clue who made it, but if I saw it offered cheaply, I'd buy it in a flash. True, I do buy glass without too much prompting; however, this piece looks worth taking a chance on. It's also the kind of piece that is fun to research, although I may not find out who made for months, or ever. It's pressed glass, isn't it? It doesn't look like any Chinese glass that I've come across recently. The acid test for Chinese is often,"Can I see it on eBay?"

Hi David

I am a true novice at the glass game so haven't even got a clue what pressed glass is.  I bought it in a second hand shop here in the charente for 5euros a bargain in my eyes.  I liked it becaue the colours go with my art deco lounge.  I have researched it on google but apart from the fact amber matches art deco I have found nothing - really I just want to shut OH up!  ;D

I'd be very surprised if it was Chinese to be honest. I think I'd be looking towards Germany or Czechoslovakia for this if it was mine.

Pain, a trawl through Pamela's catalogues might bring a result:

Start with Walther - I'm pretty sure it'll be there. :)

I saw one of these the other day at an auction, it had "Czechoslovakia" embossed around two of the feet of the bowl.

Pamela has this bowl in clear pink in her Museum http://pressglas-pavillon.de/schalen/01800.html and she has it attributed to Bernsdorf, but no date or pattern name/number is given for it.

I'm pretty sure it's the same bowl, amber and pink were two normal colours. The red is the difference - I wonder if it's meant to look like tortoiseshell, which was very fashionable at one time. I'd suspect your bowl dates from the 1930s, but I've not managed to pin it down more than that yet. Someone else may be able to add more about it though.

BTW what size is yours please?
