I picked this up at the weekend it is very heavy and the sides are ribbed and undulating the sections alternate between clear and frosted glass. It has a very high uranium content and the handles appear to be stylised fishes but they may be flowers I have not made my mind up about this yet. I have not been able to find this piece at Pamela's wonderful site but I have seen a similar handles on a Brockwitz piece there. It certainly has an air of quality about it.

Measurements are 13 inches across (from handle to handle) and 3.5 inches in height. Not the best pictures I have ever taken but it is proving tricky to capture well. I hope that someone will recognise it. Thanks in advance.

Sowerby 2572 salad bowl (info Thistlewood Sowerby CD 2, shown in 1956 catalogue, though this is likely earlier). A plinth was an option.

Brockwitz is not this yellowy green; it's usually a very, very pale grass green that you'd be hard put to say had uranium in it without testing it.

Hi Pamela :)

Thanks, don't know how I missed that, I looked in the centerpiece section three times as well, perhaps I need a new prescription for my glasses!

The third example of Brockwitz green that you linked to is the item that led me astray as the handles are very similar to this Sowerby piece.

But still all very pale, apart from the last piece, which I would say was turquoise.  :kissy:
