id please for u. desert bowl
« on: February 21, 2010, 04:20:29 PM »
something from a very early and cold Sunday morning, which I am thinking is possibly Bagley or Davidson (Christine?).    This is what I call the 'oily green uranium', almost a sort of yellowish green.     As you can see, unlike some of the Davidson material where there is a slot headed screw attaching the base to the glass, this one has only a stub of glass which protrudes thru into the metal base and is held in place by a mastic/adhesive.     It glows beautifully and is not something I have seen before.    I really like the piece, and hope someone can tell me which factory and give a date guide -  although I assume around 1930 - 1940.     thanks for looking, Paul S.

That *is* nice Paul, and not something I've seen before. It puts me in mind of the petals vases which are somewhere on the board, but not close enough I suspect.

S. Reich I believe and a sugar bowl probably rather than a dessert bowl. I have some bits in this pattern and I'll post pix later, if i have any

thank you for the identification  -  am sure you are more correct with the 'sugar' description than my thoughts of a dessert bowl.     Look forward to seeing any pics. if you do have them.     I have been thru Pamela's images, although was unable to see this particular piece.          Paul S.

however, think I now see the design, which occurs in two pieces  -  one a box and the other a vase.     As you say, S. Reich.    Paul S.

Hi Paul
Yes definately S Reich (c1936) but I was a bit thrown seeing the chrome mount as I dont recal seeing any Reich items mounted like this.  After trolling through my reference paperwork I can confirm this was originnaly a two piece item, the lid looking something similar to the base and the complete thing looking something like a cabbage (not like the ones done by Portieux I hasten to add).  Looks like someone has done a marriage with a chrome base, maybe the lid was broken....that said id rather have it on my table than a modern one.

thanks for your comments UKGLASS.     I did in fact go back to Pamela's site as a result of Christine's comments, and found what I believe is the design on something that Pamela calls a 'box'.    This is a free standing (no plinth or metal base) piece, which has a lid in cabbage rose type design (the body of the piece showing just the outer petals as in a rose bud).    As for my 'sugar' I am convinced it was made originally as you now see it  -  and if Christine is correct, then of course it wud never have had a lid  -  from memory it doesn't have any lip or rim as you might expect in a lidded piece.    However, maybe we need to think more about this one, but I do think it is quite genuine the way it looks.   Agree with you that it is a very nice piece tho  -  cost me 75p. :)     Paul S.

There's a whole range of stuff in this pattern. I think I've seen a pink one on a chrome stand (and it's not an uncommon form; I saw a Walther piece done in the same way at the weekend). I have two violet vases, or maybe egg cups: one in the lovely Reich uranium jade and one in frosted and matt green uranium. I also have a grapefruit dish in jade, which has a lovely row of roses on the outside of the upturn of the saucer. The grapefruit can just be seen in the pic.

my sincere thanks to both of you for your help - where wud we be withough people prepared to share their knowledge and expertise.    Anyway, I must look out for some more pieces in this design.   Wud just comment that the mastic must have been a quality product to have lasted this long.   Paul S.
