What a great weekend for booty buys, seven items including a Holmegaard decanter, a nice Mdina vase, two scandi vases, probably Aseda and 3 unknowns. Total outlay £22.50. :D
Please take a look, not entirely happy with the rose bowl quality though.

Hi lyndhurst44,
That really was a great weekend, and some great finds.
Your blue bowl looks incredibly like one that tigerchips has, mentioned in this thread;

That's better, I really do get over excited sometimes :roll:
The pink psychedelic vase has a raised pontil just like Isle of Wight's bullet. The blue bowl is another enigma. Scandanavian :?:
Thanks for your help.

Hi Della,
No tag I'm afraid, the bowl measures  10.5" x 7.75" would that be similar to yours?
Cheers,

This is the Ikea one of TC's thread - the colour and proportions are about right, but it's hard to tell if the shape is right from the photograph:

I like the rosebowl Bryn has a Loetz / Pallme Koenig look to it, is the rim OK under the plated top, that can often hide a multitude of sins.

I agree with Paul.  The rose bowl was the one item I said 'Ooooh!' about.  The others are good too, but are pretty much standard fare compared to the rose bowl.  

I'll be interested to see further developments, and well done for a GREAT haul!!!!  :D  :D  :D

Well done Bryn!

Any chance of a picture of the underside + pontil mark on the psychadelic pink one?

The mark impressed in the IOWSG pontil blob represents a gather of glass in a flame, the IOWSG logo. Is this what you mean by the bullet?

There are other marks other studios impress in their bits, sometimes these marks can be a bit squidged and difficult to make out, unless you know what you're looking at!

Holmegaard? Standard fare?  :shock: Take it back!

haha :wink:

No, the rose bowl is rather pretty, though. But I'd still rather have the decanter.   :lol:
