Large brilliant blue bowl
« on: February 11, 2010, 11:01:49 PM »
This is a large blue bowl.  The bowl appears to be pressed.  It looks as if it has been made in 3 sections as there are 3 lines running from top to bottom and equally spaced.  The bowl measures 14cm high and the top 12.2cm dia. the base 9.2cm.  There is a rim around the base that measures 0.4cm wide and stands slightly proud approx. 0.2/3cm in depth. The vase is quite thick 0.4cm.  I am unable to obtain any info. about this particular piece but have my own feeling that this may be a Sklo Union.  Can anyone assist?   Kind Regards

I always associate this colour with Greener & Co in England, Otis, but I might be way off with this one. It's not a pattern I recognise though. No mark on the base I suppose? Sometimes there's one in the centre of the star base which isn't easy to see.

Hi Anne,  I have looked at the bowl again and cannot see any markings on it at all.  I even have gone as far as to use a magnifying glass. :24:  Thanks for you help with this.  It is difficult when they are no clear markings.

regarding pattern and colour: probably a member of Brockwitz FRIDA range? missing a lid? put upside down as base of a two-part centrepiece?
just guessing  :pb:

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)
