I haven't made any progress with this but have an application in at glass-forums.com (US) so once that's processed I'll post a query.  In the meantime, here are a couple more photos.  (Trying to keep you interested . . .)

This is a friendly bump.  I've kind of lost hope of finding out the who/where/why of this thing.  But I would be interested to hear what anyone might think as to its reason for being. My feeling is that maybe it was made by an art student as their graduation piece, or something like that.  It seems to serve no useful purpose because, as I said earlier, it is really too heavy to be some sort of trinket or powder box (in my opinion).  Just a tad cumbersome.  So any thoughts would be appreciated (not looking for ID - just thoughts about it as a glass object).  Thanks!

No, no NO!  You can't give up!  I am still looking on a daily basis for this piece.....I am sure it is very special...maybe from one of the more expensive pefume and toiletry houses.  I see it on a par with Lalique, and I am not ready to give up yet!  Heavens above, I am still looking for Paul S's pink bowl with the hot worked edge, and that was AGES ago.......

Hi Rosie.  It's the fact that I kind find ANYTHING like it that makes me think it must be a one-off and I'm therefore unlikely to discover its origins.  But it's VERY heartening to know that you are also looking out for it!  No, I won't give up exactly, but having searched and searched I'm pretty resigned to not finding an answer.  (Maybe it's like waiting for a bus - none comes along until you pretend you don't really want one -- know what I mean?)

This is often how things do get id'd, Nancy - folk see interesting things and they get stored away in the recesses of their brains, and if anything relevant appears on the general scene, it gets noted!

I'm now on the look-out for pink salad servers for Rosie as well as this ball of yours!

by the way - would you please shove this vase of mine in the recesses of your brain for a similar noting?  :-*

Hi Sue,  the glass salad servers are for wolkenreb, not me.....he mentioned that he was on the look out for a pair in pink in Aniks thread about her Hermanova Hut fish dish!! :sun:
