Another Gossamer bowl, bought this morning.  May be part of a fruit set? 3½" high x 8" diameter.

:D:twisted::D

Last week I bought a small pressed glass tumbler in a charity shop, where the lady is convinced I know all sorts of things (well I suppose I know SOME things) and she charged me £1.50 for it. It was something they would normally charge 10p for. I thought it might be Gossamer, but I don't think it actually is. Your pictures seem to show that there is a small blob at the intersection of the criss-crosses. This tumbler does not have this. It's nothing of any interest at all, I strongly suspect!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Anne: Many thanks, this is a new shape to me – duly noted :D The photos look fine, but I'll let you know if any more are required.

I'd agree that it does look part of a fruit set.

Sue: The Gossamer design is proud of the surface (embossed, if you like) and quite fine, so if it's like this it might be Gossamer — see Anne's third photo as you can see it clearly here.

A tiny blob is noted on each intersection but I'm not sure if this was carried through to all shapes. Buy Now Regret Later?  :wink:

If you can manage a photo sometime I'd like to see it.  8)

Quote from: "Anne E.B."
I've got a tall lab. glass (Arthur Percy - Gullaskruf shape) that has "P.H. & CO" etched on it.

After all this time, it finally clicked: Philip Harris & Co. :D

Just found my Britannia De Luxe all-over frosted bowl that I previously mentioned back in Feb.  Possibly part of a fruit set - 4¾" diam. x 2" high - metal rim.  This has a curious pink tinge to it.  Unlike the sugar bowl and jug pics. that I submitted, this bowl doesn't have a rim/foot. :P  Unless its a trick of the light, it could well have 'Chance' on the inside bottom. :shock:   That would be a more likely place of putting it because of the patterned exterior.

Hi Anne,

Thanks for this. I have already got a photo of one this size having a silver rim, but not the pink colour.

The pink is actually an exterior enamel coating that, as Anne (Yobunny) will testify, will come off if you're too vigorous with the cleaning! However, one is shown on the site that is pretty much intact.

Now, this raises a slight query: the "De Lux" range were supposed to be those items with coloured inserts (see examples on the site). But did this range also cover those with an all-over colouring?

But personally with it having a silver rim, I'd think this was more likely to be used as a sugar bowl rather than from a fruit set.

The pink tinge is like the one on my plate and bowl Anne. Beware it does scrub off though - my plate is now no longer pink!   :roll:

David - here's a Dahlia pattern tear-drop (?) shape bowl. Gilt edge. 29cm long x 17cm at widest x 3cm high.

 :wink:

Anne - the pink tinged bowl appears to have lost most of its colour apart from just underneath the metal rim where it looks unsightly.  Not dish washer proof either I bet :?

Thanks, Anne. Super photo and one of the less common shapes.
