Anne, thanks for confirming: I can't seem to find that photo but do you have the URL as I'd like to include it. Looking at the bowl very closely, I can confirm it IS coated, not frosted! :roll:
Christine, that Spiderweb sounded rather interesting. I wonder if this was pre-war due to the way the base was fixed?
Sue, see above: I'm sure the example I have is the 'ivory inserts' variety and will post a photo shortly.
