Help with identification of glass bowl
« on: November 24, 2005, 04:41:51 PM »
Hello,

I would greatly appreciate any help in finding out more about this glass bowl that I acquired as a spontaneous purchase a few days ago for its beautiful appearance. It was described as an arts & crafts green glass bowl. I have trawled Google etc but can’t find anything similar.

Height: 10cm
Diameter top: 25cm
Diameter base: 16cm

Thank you

Hi Deltab,

I can't tell why you can't see the images, please try these direct links.

It reminds me of the design seen on the vase discussed in this thread

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,2759.0.html

The link to the Harrach vase on Trocadero no longer works.  The item probably sold.  But if I remember correctly it was similar to your bowl - a smooth glass  rather than an optic mold.

Thanks for that, lots of links to explore on that tread.
I'm just cooking dinner now so will follow them up later.
Thanks

I think it's also a possibility this is by Stuart, England.

LINK

sorry about the long link - I couldn't get the clever url thingy to work!  :oops:

Although I think Harrach made something similar too as Connie said.

By coincidence Max I just got to the same reference from tracing a link to Stuart. The bowl (see photo or link to photo below) is almost identical to mine except mine has more waves / ripples.

I think it's a really lovely bowl, I'd like to have one myself...only I've got nowhere to put it.  :D

By the way, have you used the photo from the website?  I think it's a bit of sticky wicket to use peoples photo's unless you've asked permission, or maybe you have?  Sorry, I'm just a bit wary of litigation!

Hey, that's clever!  I had a go.  I wonder if they stand the test of time?   Maybe that doesn't matter so much if they just go back to long URL's?

On my favourites!   :wink:
