Is this American Pressed Glass??
« on: May 20, 2011, 01:30:22 PM »
Hello All,

can anyone tell me anything about this bowl??   It's 30cm wide and about 5cm tall and a sort of Olive Green.  It is pressed with the raised pattern on the underside and the detail is in diamond point.  The pattern just sort of says American to me but I ahve only seen the etched type patterns in the past and not pressed like this one.  Any help is always much appreciated.

regards   Markus

unknown pink

a far relative?

Markus, these are all unknown to me, however, I might recall that we had two 'sisters' here on GMB one marked 'France', the other 'Belgium'

The beautiful greyish green colour of yours perhaps points to Belgium? jmho


Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I haven't seen anything like it before in books or in person, pretty neat looking, though.
