Hil â€” My 2004 edition of Bowey & Parsons shows on page 77 the trade catalogue illustration for an Andromeda
centrepiece set comprising large Equinox
bowl, square plinth, block, and Andromeda
figurine. I've had several of these sets through my hands.
At a recent glass fair I had all three Andromeda
centrepiece sets on offer. One was the Equinox
set, the second was the Queen's Choice
set, and the third the bloom ring set in Crystopal
. It was pleasing to be able to show all three together and complete, and at least two
people noticed and made favourable comments!
I've never seen the large Equinox
bowl on its own, and I suspect that few, if any, were sold this way. Lonely bowls are likely to have emerged more recently from the activities of those who collect centrepiece figurines on their own.
