I think the large one has 11 or 12, counting from here. He literally means ribs, raised lines. Think of the turned-in vases where they are more obviously ribs.

The CD version of the Bagley book shows the same catalogue image, but Angela's text above it states: "The catalogue picture ...  shows the Bagley 'Equinox' flower bowl with the Bagley 'Andromeda' figurine set into a flower block. " whilst below that catalogue image it states on the catalogue page itself, "FLOWER SET. No. 3061/T L/S 4-PIECE" - does that help at all?

Er...doesn't help me, Anne, I am rapidly losing the thread, so to speak. 

I thought Bernard was saying that the illustration on p. 80 of Bowery, Parsons was faux, because only the freestanding Andromeda would be used with the bloom ring.

Really makes me miserable, too - I am still learning and must count on interpretations in print.  Heavy sigh. :cry:

He is. You wouldn't have the Andromeda in a block in the ring because you couldn't use the holes in the block and it would look silly. It's not so much faux, as catalogue compilers' ignorance and lack of proofing or "Oh dear, nobody will notice." Pre-digital, making changes was so much more time consuming and expensive.

Hello all
Read all this with interest as we have been donated a bowl in pale clear green glass that I thought was the Equinox bowl shown on page 100 of Andy McConnell's book. Our bowl is 12" across the outer 'frill' and has 12 of the curved ribs. My query is what is the difference between 'a flower block' and a 'bloom ring'? This bowl has the round clear glass domed insert with holes for the flower stems that my Mum called a 'flower frog'.
Any help gratefully received. The Hospice does very well with glass in general, both in the shops and on ebay. Many of the people who donate or leave items to us are of an age to have been buying first half 20th century new.
Regards
Jeanne

A flower block and a flower frog are generally the same thing: things with holes in. A bloom ring is a polo shaped trough for very short stem flowers. See here
