Pressed glass fruit bowl - French - but which maker?
« on: April 17, 2010, 05:18:39 PM »
This fruit bowl is identical in pattern to a trinket set, the candle of which, belonging to t'other Anne, has the remains of a MADE IN FRANCE label.
Can anyone kill two birds with one stone (and I don't mean us ;)) and help ID it please?

Just for reference and in case it helps jog a memory somewhere, this is the trinket set which matches t'other Anne's fruit bowl here: LINK - maybe the colours of the greens might be a clue?

Regarding the finish and style, Bayel comes to my mind - but couldn't find a proof for that so far - still digging  :-\

Sometimes a VERY faint high-pressed mark by the plunger inside the bowl, see here
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)
