I wish I was better at this identification thing. I'm probably totally wrong but i'm guessing it's English. It shines bright green under UV. 8.25 inches diameter and 5 inches high.

I was just so pleased to buy this at only £3. I even got a crackle glass vase thrown in for free.  :shock:

Any ideas what this is? Thank you.  :)

Tigerchips's green Deco bowl

Tigerchips — your green Deco bowl is Sowerby 2616, mid to late '30s.   Also known on a black plinth (can't recall the number of the plinth).    Also produced as a matching vase, again optionally with a slightly smaller plinth, number 2616, with the same pattern number used for both.    If you let me have the exact width of the bowl's base, I will be able to provide you with the correct plinth number.

Art Deco Green Uranium pressed glass bowl

You did well! Green crackle glass sometimes glows with uranium as well and some amber (and cream/white and blue) glass. Don't forget the glow has to be BRIGHT green, even if not always very intense - if that makes sense. Your Sowerby bowl will be a bright green but sometimes manganese in green glass (and other colours) will give an intense but dull green glow - there's no uranium then. :D

It's square at the top.  :?

The green crackle glass doesn't shine under UV. I don't think it's old, infact, I don't think it's crackle glass. I've just found a crack in it which would explain why I got it for nothing. I will post a topic of it later.

Thank you Bernard, The base is 11 cm diameter. I did check the Sowerby catalogues but I didn't find it.

Oh, I had no idea that my pictures were causing problems. I shall keep them as a link in future.  :)

Pamela — Absolutely.   Sowerby had great difficulty with their pinks, so they solved the problem by re-naming the colour "Rosalin".    I like their style, turning a problem into a feature!

In my opinion the black plinth sets it off to great advantage.   2616 plinths turn up on eBay quite frequently, as Sowerby subsequently used it for everything with a base of the same diameter, nominally 3¾".    I have identified three minor variants, unmarked, marked "2616" in large exuberant serifed numerals, and marked "2616" in small thin unserifed numerals.   Explanation — two mould cutters, each with their own set of punches.   Unlike the 2506 plinth, there are no major variations in profile, but they do differ slightly in shape, so if you are buying a pair, ensure that they are a perfect match.

I had a wonderful 2616 garniture set (bowl + 2 vases + plinths) in uranium green through my hands about five years ago.   Everything matched perfectly, even the lettering on the plinths.    As you would expect, it sold very quickly.

Tiger - it is on the Sowerby CD catalogues. The 2616 is shown in the form of the (celery) vase on a black plinth. It's on "Page Two" of the Tynesyde Glassware" catalogue (between list 35 and 38).
