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,

Hi Bryn,
Sorry, the bowl is not mine. Is is Tigerchips'. Hopefully he will come along and give you some measurements.

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:
