I'm going to disagree with robert (very nicely, of course) :) - and say that I think the flowing/curved lines of the swags suggest a more pre deco style - thus maintaining my original thoughts of pre 1920, supported, maybe, by the "fair amount of wear". 

Hmmmm! You may well be right about that,Paul.  It would explain the cutting not being quite as 'adventurous' as the slightly later 'Art' pieces! 

If I could just get a slightly more definite hint of the precise period of this piece, it might give me a better idea of where to look for more info!  :-\ 

Thanks again for your input :)

No suitable hints in Nigel's Art Deco to Post Modernism  :-\

Not really, Christine   Unless it's just that I'm to dense to see the clues  :spls: (which is entirely possible!  ::) )  Although I did wonder if this bowl might be more recent than I supposed - it's a very heavy item (2.5 kg) and I suppose the signs of heavy wear can happen if something that heavy is moved a lot, not just over a long period of time  :-\   

Just spent the morning going through BOTH Hajdamach's AND 'The Glass of John Walsh Walsh' (just in case) AND 'Art Deco to Post Modernism' again, just in case!   Where next?  :hb2:   

 :help:

Leni, you say the cut is too simple to be "brilliant".
I'm not exactly sure what this term means - is it the same thing as I >:D would refer to as "Death by a thousand cuts"?
