I was very pleased to have won a Hermanova fish bowl, pattern number 19347... Despite knowing the bowl's dimensions (150mm x 140mm x 50mm) I didn't realize how small it really was.   I thought I was getting a fruit bowl.  


A similar fish platter (19348) appears in the 1961/5 CGR.  As far as I know, the designer is still unknown.

Edit:  Sorry, but I wasn't aware that the bowl had appeared earlier on the GMB here:  http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,34665.0.html

The large bowl is much harder to find than the small ones. I had a small green uranium one http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=634

Possibly it was once a larger range of items, tantalising gaps in the numbering. If sold as sets of platter and 6 bowls the platter would be harder to find as well as more likely to have been broken.

Delightful piece though.

I have seen a full set, but even the little ones usually only pop up as singles, possibly because there too many sticky out bits to chip easily. The big one is more of a bowl than a platter. It's quite deep.

They are lovely, I bought my sister a set comprising a large bowl and several smaller bowls, from memory I think they were green but not uranium. Will try and snap a photo of them soon.

Ooooooo.... A set would be so much more pleasing than one itty-bitty bowl!  John, your sister is a fortunate woman.  :)

Here is a big one in pink Anik.....you could collect a multi coloured set....one of each colour as they come up for sale!!  Actually, on reflection, that could be quite nice......don't you think?

Thank you, Rosie, but no multicoloured sets for me.

Oh Anik... no multicoloured sets ... live dangerously

Mind you what sort of desert is served in a fish fruit bowl service  :nk: Cod Ice cream and strawberries?
