Ebay Item 7361986430 - ID
« on: October 31, 2005, 05:55:01 AM »
I have a uranium stump lady and bowl listed currently on Ebay under number 7361986430.  I have had a query regarding the date of manufacture.  I have always been interested in getting an ID for this particular piece and now is a good time to raise it with the Board.  Is there anyone out there who may know the manufacturer and approximate date of manufacture of the piece.

I think it might be Sowerby. I often see them on eBay described as such (not that that is anything to go by).

There is currently a pink one in one of my charity shops for £6 with bowl. I resisted buying it because the figure has a chip in it and I don't think the bowl matches the figure.

Sowerby

Hi, the Sowerby piece has the same subject matter but is larger.  She is generally seen with a bowl with large cabbage roses on the base or another bowl with interconnecting starbursts.  This piece is different and I believe is Czech but that is all I know.

By the way, what sort of bowl does your lady in the charity shop come with????

I've forgotton what the pink bowl looks like but if the bowl is still there today I will take a picture.  :)

The pink figure in the shop seems to have a mould line running right through the centre.

The lady in the photos is the Sowerby piece.  The bowl is original, I believe.  It is the bowl I described with interconnecting starbursts on the base.  These sets generally sell for around GBP10 to GBP15 on Ebay and a lot more in Australia.  If I saw one of these in a second hand shop in Australia for $15 (rough equivalent of GBP6) I would be taking it home with me pronto.

You can probably see the difference between the pink and uranium figures.  I have attached a link to another photo of my figure so a better comparison can be made.

The lady looks genuine to me - the stump is actually a pedestal that also acts as the flower frog, I have found that earlier bowls with central figures seem to be in two pieces, later on you get three pieces (bowl, frog, figurine) for e.g. Inwald's 'Poisson Volant' anyone any idea why that is?

Top right hand corner 1930s two piece version

Top right hand corner what I believe is version made post war up to 1960s

I have both versions and from the base ware and scratching I have concluded the blue one on the Black Poppy site like my own is 1930s, the amber three piece version is so clean and new looking

The eBay item is in two pieces which is a good indication
I believe it is by 'Cambridge Glass' USA - take a look at the below link, the ridged pedestal is typical of their work

http://www.black-poppy.co.uk/sold/cambridge/list.htm

On the same site is the exact same model of figure as one being sold on eBay http://www.black-poppy.co.uk/sold/cambridge/me17.jpg small green, it does not have the ridged or gadrooned pedestal/frog but they did smooth versions as well, the point is the shape is an exact match and you can see looking through the different pages on Black Poppy that the base is very ‘Cambridge’

As to the bowl, there would have been different shapes, and although it is not shown on Black Poppy site, I am sure it is original and Cambridge as well

I do think the price asked is a bit steep, but that is just my opinion, I am sure Black Poppy would be pleased to advise you

Hi, similar in style as are all of three of the stump figures but not the same and far finer in detail and workmanship.  It is not Cambridge...the Cambridge figure is also known as "Bashful Charlotte" or the "Draped Lady" - moulds were sold to Imperial and later produced as figurines etc I believe.

I am almost certain that my piece is Czech but would still be grateful for an ID

I forgot to say, the Cambridge figures do not have a ridged base as mentioned.  I have owned a couple. The ribbed appearance is, in fact, the flower holes in silhouette.  Also, I have sold two of three of the uranium pieces before and have good experience of the price they fetch on the Ebay market.
