Hello everyone again
I have just aquired this bowl today it is absolutely huge I have never had a bowl this big before!
It is in a lovely uranium green glass the underside is frosted while the surface is satin.It is decorated with a stylised scene of native Americans hunting buffalo while on horseback.
Any ideas please?
Many thanks in advance!

Cambridge Glass 1339 Everglades Buffalo Hunt Scene http://clicksnipwow.com/chataboutdg/img15411.htm

Frosted is satin; I think you mean shiny. How huge? 14 inches? The Walther Seerose comes close at 13 inches

Well congrats Nige thats quite a find. The 16" Cambridge Everglade Buffalo Scene bowl consistantly sells for $275+  here in the US & they are very hard to find.  The one in the URL was mine. Ken

Hi Ken
Thanks for that! The amber is lovely or cinnamon as it is called in the link.
Got mine for a bargain price of £19.99 I was the only bidder!
I have also just purchased a part clear part frosted bowl made by Reich with the feet as elves/boys for £5!!!

Very nice item. Imperial made a few of these in milk glass in the 1950s or 60s in the shape just as it comes from the mould ... about the size of medium punch bowl. The mould went to Summit Art Glass in the mid-1980s when Imperial closed, and they made a few in opaque brown Chocolate glass. Now that Summit has closed, the mould might be owned by Mosser and/or Rosso Wholesale Glass.

Fenton owns a few of the original Everglades moulds, but not this one. And, don't ask what a Buffalo is doing in the Everglades!

James all Cambridge molds, every single one of them Summit still owned are now in the possession of the National Cambridge Collectors. No one else has any of the Summit Cambridge molds Russ owned up until his unfortunate passing. We've had them for a year & a half now. Matter of fact they were just inventoried & placed in an NCC secured storage building. Summit made those five prototype flying lady bowls & I (personal opinion) believe that threw a scare into the organization so after 6 months of negotiations they were all purchased to make certain there would be no reproductions from overseas.

Would add my congratulations also to Nige - lovely bowl and a good price :)       Also very heartwarming to hear the comments from Ken, with respect to placing some of these older moulds out of reach of replicators.   It is the scourge of genuine collectors and authors when older patterns are reproduced and sold in the market place, often as originals.    Aside from the deception from a monetary point of view, there is the far more important aspect that genuine original production figures become permanently muddled, and leads to confusion all round, especially in the literature.    Whilst no expert on the over-use of period moulds, it is a fact that when used for too long the end results lose the sharpness and appeal of originals.   Unfortunately, it seems that wherever there is a demand, there is someone ready to cash in on the needs of a collector.
