I've just unpacked this lump of  blue glass,it looks like a hubcap but it is fruit bowl deep 30cm across and approx 9cm deep,a gorgeous deep blue with some weight to it,is it recognisable to anyone as i have not seen it in any of my books.thank you for looking...Lynn

Lynn, snap! Except mine's bigger than yours. ;)

I bought mine new for a couple of pounds at a large cheapjack shop in Kendal a few years back. They had 16" and 12" ones, all in blue.

I found these in clear (well that greeny-clear) recycled glass on the Couronne website, but not in blue. Couronne (based in Texas, USA) deals in recycled glass so I don't know for sure who made them - if Couronne make them or outsource to somewhere cheaper.

They are great for pot pourri, fruit, floating candles etc...
