19 sided base
16 pointed star in center
10 inches across the top
6 1/4 inches high
5 1/2 inches across the bottom.

Kind of a gray color
Lots of bubbles and imperfections.

Waterford says it isn't theirs.

Belonged to my mother. No clue when or where she bought it.

Help very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Could you let us know which country you're based in as this may help with identification.

The fact that  you mention a grey color, bubbles and imperfections would tend to rule out Brilliant cut glass. The  period known as Brilliant Period cut ran from 1880 to about 1915 depending on which author you read. The glass was very clear, free of bubbles and the designs were quite elaborate. This piece seems to be much later. Sorry can't be of much help though. Terry

Terry -

I was thinking the same thing but for additional reasons.  To me, stylistically this bowl does not  say "American" to me.  It looks more European - Germany?
