Hi Jean,
WMF 'Perlora' comes to my mind, and it looks as if Uranium glass? Just a guess however  :angel:

Yes Jean, should glow green under UV light
WMF = Württembergische Metallwaren Fabriken, Germany
(not only metal works) Had their famous IKORA, PERLORA and MYRA ranges in glass  :)

Do WMF make shallow bowls as the tiny bubbles in these pieces remind me of a WF's type bowl I posted recently, have looked for a site about WMF but can't find much,Keith.

evening Keith
I thought this may have been WF..but have checked and can find nothing, that said, i am a novice..i did put it on WF board..had lots of looks..but no comments, so i guesses it was one of those pieces no one seems to know ? i have a small bowl..very similar..different base..have put that on WF to see if anyone can advise.

Didn't explain that very well did I?I meant a bowl I have, which is not Whitefriars, has tiny bubbles like the piece you posted and I wondered if my bowl could be WMF,Keith.

Jean and Keith,
it was just my GUESS, I'm not an expert on crystal glass, I'm afraid  :-X

but found also a small amethyst bowl by googling 'perlora glas' - of course unsure, whether that attribution there is correct  :ac1:
