a probable U. powder puff jar.
« on: July 27, 2010, 08:02:56 PM »
this is just because I think it looks very attractive (last Sunday's b.s.) a great U. glow - and the enamel paint must be almost the thickest I have seen.  Anyone wish to comment  :)

hello Anne  -  have measured, and height is 4 inches/100mm  -  with the diameter something like 4.5/8 inches/118mm.     I don't really expect any specific information  -  think it's a little too obscure for that, but just thought you'd like the pictures.        Date wise I guess something like late 1920's to maybe mid 1940 ish, and it may well be simply a stand alone piece, rather than part of a trinket set.    Quite remarkably, there isn't even a 'flea bite' to be seen   cheers               Paul S.

Sounds like a powder pot sort of size doesn't it?  Thanks for sharing the pics - I'll keep it in mind whilst trawling through catalogues etc... in case I find a match. :kissy:

I have a similar one which I posted on here some time ago in uranium opaline glass.  No definite ID but thought to be Bohemian

thanks  -  and yes, I could go with Bohemian - or perhaps Czech.      Don't know too much about Harrach or Theresienthal, so don't know whether this has their level of quality.    I suspect it may eventually go back into the charity shop, since I can't keep every piece I find, unfortunately. :cry:   Anyway, thanks for your thoughts.
