I'm going to have to hunt mine out now, as I can't remember if I had a large amber platter or a large amber bowl!
Cheers,
Meegs (who has no objection to Harlequin/multicoloured sets!

Christine said big bowl is deep, so not a platter, Now if you have a platter that would be an unknown pattern number.

You could use it for prawn cocktail or salmon mousse though Frank! :)

Having gone and out in the wind and rain and crawled under the house I found the my large example it is definitely a bowl but I did find this example of what I would describe as a small platter which I purchased with it.

Frank,
I would say it is a flatter version of Anik's bowl.
At its highest point it is 3.5cm and approx 16 x 17cm.
I remember now that when I purchased these I had every intention of making up a mixed set but the only other small examples I've managed to find since then were a couple of green bowls and in my opinion they were too marked/damaged with limescale for the asking price so I never purchased them.
Hence the delegation to under the house!

Indeed but the available catalogue shows the desert bowl and a serving bowl, Yours is clearly neither, Earlier catalogues are need, I would not be surprised if this is a pre ww2 design.

I'd say meegs' fish is a plate or platter, not a bowl.

In the catalogue, the 19347 bowls come in four sizes: 110mm, 130mm, 150mm and 210mm.
The 19348, according to Marcus' database, is a plate.  The catalogue only offers it in one size:  280mm.  The picture in the catalogue looks more plate-ish than bowl-ish.  The CGR, on the other hand, refers to the 19348 as a bowl.  The fish in Rosie's link is 280mm and looks like a bowl.

Either way, meegs' example doesn't fit any of the sizes offered by the pre-1958 Hermanova catalogue, so I believe Frank is right in saying there are other fish in the sea.  (Oh, I'm so funny...  har-har... )

I think the use of uranium also pushes the date back to pre or just post WW2.

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure I once saw a set on Ebay which had matching salad servers - a salad set rather than a dessert set.  Or maybe the seller had just found 2 glass servers of the same colour?  Dunno, but they're lovely.
