just a question - if you set both bowl bits down on their cut edge next to each other, is the design the exactly the same way round, or the opposite i.e. you could make a pair of eyes with it?

Oh dear - I need to clear something up re the pink salad servers!!!  I mentioned that I had seen the dessert bowls on ebay which came with matching salad servers and I bid for the lot but lost. I am keeping a lookout for another set, but only out of interest  . . not to buy, yet anyway.  So Rosie and Sue, please don't waste your energies looking for pink salad servers for me!!!!  Whew!  (and I am female but not sure about the lady bit Sue!)

Back to the glass box thingy - Flying Free asked about the pattern matching or not when both halves are set on their rims.  The answer is the pattern is the same on each ie not mirror images.  I wonder why you asked?

Good morning Lady Nancy!!  Won't spend time looking for the salad servers then, but if you would like the clear crystal Art Deco ones I have, you are still most welcome.

There is a complete green set on eBay at the moment, but it isn't a proper matching set as the underplate is the Stolzle Squared Eye pattern.

I love this spherical bowl of yours, and will still spend some time each day researching it.....you never know????  :X:

Rosie - many thanks for the offer of the crystal servers. I'm sending you a pm.

Re my theory that the glass box thingy might be a 'graduation' piece, if such things do indeed exist, any thoughts?  Is there anything about this piece that might reveal when it might have been made?  Would it  have been difficult to make?

Ta!

Perhaps the inspiration for yours...

Thanks Frank.  Yes, that's one of the two slightly similar pieces I've been able to find.  It may also have been the inspiration for this Lalique design

http://blog.sub-studio.com/2008/01/lalique-vibration-box/

Both have their designs on the outside rather than the inside though.  Interesting to note though that the blogger comments that the Lalique box seems to serve no practical purpose - just a pretty object.

... just a pretty object.

Which seems to be the purpose of many of our collectables!

Advantage of internal design is easy cleaning.

Bump!  I was thinking that if, as appears likely, this was made in a mould (same mould for each half as they are identical except for joining rims), surely more must have been produced ie, what a waste of time and effort in making a mould for just one finished piece?  Which would lead me to think that there are other examples out there somewhere!  Here's hoping . . .

I'm glad you have bumped this piece!!
I've been racking my brains over this piece as well....probably because I like it so much........I never stop looking until an attribution is given, so we will find it Nancy,  it is just a more elusive piece!!
