Looks like it should be a lightshade
« on: February 13, 2006, 08:46:27 PM »
But it's not, it's a blow-moulded fruit bowl in uranium green glass. Looks very fifties as well with its stippled frosting (this is moulded, not applied after) and its silver and black lines. Interestingly, the base is slightly concave all the way across. Any thoughts anybody please.

Christine, I would have posted earlier if I could have said, why I think it could be Belgium or France...  :?:  :!: I can't  :(
IMHO could be Art Déco as well

Lampshade, European (including UK), 1950's or 60's even.

Christine, your frosted moulding looks like applied frit...I've bought glasses and a jug with the same effect.   :?

No Max, I'm pretty certain it's not applied frit. It's not the same as the glasses, jugs and fruit sets you find with frosted bands. It's too regular, it's not raised and it doesn't feel the same - too smooth. It's stippling in the mould - see Connie's 'Greta' dressing table set

On a related note I have a bowl that my Mum owns in a larger version as a lightshade. :)

I'm using son's computer at the mo and don't know how to use it properly so apologies,but I was searching for something and came across Belgian glass that reminded me of your bowl - nothing identical,but might be worth a search.
I was on the Hogelandshoeve site, but I don't know how to copy and paste the link using this laptop, sorry.  I was looking under the Gallery link on the left under belgian glass.
