What would sit on these plinths?

Anne !
Well I'll be a ********
It is exactly the same !!!
Duh ! Which planet am I on ???
It didn't for one moment occur to me that it could be the same ! Thank you for waking me up !
I had been meaning to ask about mine for ages and had a photo ready at Anne's ID Gallery !
I didnt know what to do with the others I had collected so gave them to Bernard and then this one turned up and has been kicking around various window sills.
I never thought I'd have a use for them until the other day when I noticed how nice this pretty Murano piece looked on it.

Totally the wrong use but what the hell !

Oh now for another co-incidence. I have the same Poisson Volant bowl and flower-frog in blue and yours looks great on the plinth.
Is it safe though ? Does it sit well ? I hope you don't have cats !
Pete

Anne and Peter, may I doubt please that Anne's with the Inwald?fish and your plinth are same?
Three steps to the base - hmmm yes but different
three steps to the top of Peter's - hmmm invisible on Anne's

further different three steppers can be seen here
Walther Berlin bowl one green, one pink matt, one pink shiny

Anne it is very nice to meet the star footed ensemble here again  :wink:
My Brockwitz black tray is worked out that way that the decanter stands in its 'private' limited section - it only goes with this one - same as the other one next to it on my site on a pink tray - the base of the decanter is formed/pressed onto the tray...
difficult for me to explain

Peter - my Poisson Volant bowl seems quite safe on this particular plinth.  In fact I'd say it was snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug :lol:   I compared it to the only bowl that I own with its original plinth, i.e. a Davidson one, and there is more play in the latter.  My P.V. bowl sits in the centre of the table and no one but me is allowed to touch it.  No cats (unfortunately), but I am a bit of a klutz and only this afternoon cracked a 50s retro vase bought last week whilst washing it.  I made the cardinal sin of washing it in a stainless steel sink and not a plastic bowl.  Grrrrrrrr :roll:  

Your Murano looks good on the plinth.  I've started collecting plinths now.  They can really lift a piece of glass and make it look exceptional. (unintended pun :lol:  )

Pamela - I've taken another picture of the plinth, hopefully from the same angle that Peter took his.  What do you think now?  I think it is the same.

The bowl that you show looks wonderful on its plinth.

Anne, yes at this angle really looks the same!

some of my plinths (not uploaded yet) are clearly marked as British - are yours?

I do very much like to bring this into this thread:
whenever German glass is found in Britain it is matt
like the Berlin bowl above: the shiny was found here, the matt abroad
like Cheri's Walther Rosen lidded dish: shiny here - matt abroad

guess they produced it for the market to export  :?:

That's very interesting to know Pamela.

Of the seven plinths that I have, only two are marked as being British.  The others are unmarked.

Pamela — Fascinating information, new to me.

I have about 150 mostly British plinths in stock.   The only matt examples are Davidson Cloud, apart from one, part of an all-matt blue Davidson No. 20 three piece floating bowl set.   My experience is that Davidson Cloud plinths can be matt underneath or matt all over.   Matt all over examples seem to have been supplied with D'ed sets (rim turned right over) and all-matt sets.   Jobling coloured plinths are matt all over, as are Davidson "Eva" vase plinths.   Bagley amethyst-purple (as opposed to amethyst-black) plinths are shiny.   Other Bagley coloured plinths are either all-over matt or shiny to match the set. I can't recall any Sowerby coloured or matt plinths.

I would be grateful for any additional observations.

Wow I had no Idea you had such a huge stock of them Bernard.
Are you able to identify makers and which bowls they were used for ?
Or do you just take a bowl and look for one which fits ?

Surprising comment, Peter.   I suggest you check with some of the more experienced authorities on the GMB.

er that would be you wouldn't it ?
Who else knows about plinths here then ?

I note you didn't ID Anne's so I thought maybe some of them are not identifiable.
I know nothing about them obviously, which is why I'm asking !
