Anne, the bowl is Brockwitz. It is shown in their 1941 catalogue. I am not aware of the pattern in Carnival Glass and I suspect that it is, in fact, not iridised. It's impossible to tell though, isn't it, against the black background. I've asked the seller for pics against white. Maybe we'll see them.

Thanks for the link and the chance to see this piece.

thank you Anne, and Glen also for abstaining to bid here :oops:  :D  :D  :D
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
