Hi all
Today in an antiques centre i found this dish which was marked as "old Monart glass bowl".
I dont think it is Monart but does anybody know what it actually is?
Quite nicely made with a polished pontil on the base, i didnt measure it but it was around 30cms in diameter ish
many thanks
michelle
Sorry pictures are not great but taken on my phone

Nazeing, I believe.

(as in actual Nazeing, not the stuff that looks like Nazeing but isn't... and that isn't Scottish either!)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

The distinctive feature of Nazeing is the exact sort of bubble it has - with the cloudy bit of deeper coloured enamel around it.
....Although Grey-Stan can have similar bubbles, it usually has more colours - Nazeing does not tend to come in more than two colours, and Grey-Stan is normally of slightly superior quality - it's also harder to find.

Michelle — interesting, the enthusiasm for a Nazeing attribution.   First on my list of possibilities would be 1930s Royal Brierley (Stevens & Williams).   If you buy it, please would you bring it to the National on 9th May.   I would appreciate the opportunity to examine it.

Sorry Bernard i wont be buying this one, it was more from an interest point of view to be honest, i knew it wasnt Monart, but was interested in finding out what it actually was.
Unfortunitly wont be able to make it to the national this time around either as im setting up at a little fair in Cottenham cambridge on the 9th may also
I can get you a few more pictures if that would help
many thanks
michelle
