From this item

http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/schalen/00812.gif


I found it under Walther/Bowls and Plates

But I think there might be another picture.  I will keep looking. (I knew I should have written down the specifics the first time I found it) l :lol:

Edited to add:

The link above is of the only piece pictured.  If you look under Schalen und Teller, then scroll down to Walther, it is almost at the bottom above the cloud glass pieces.

Connie, I do not think yours is Elvira - please compare again also counting the 'diamonds' and compare the star and compare the 'I don't know how you call them' in between.
but I am hunting after yours and its origin nevertheless of course - I am always happy to see more designs!

Connie - you have a Riihimaki piece there. I have seen it as part of a two piece fruit stand. The "vase" is shown upturned with a matching bowl on top in Riihimaki's 1939 catalog. The pattern of the bowl is known as "Heavy Cut" (but there is also another Carnival pattern known by that name too....which makes for some confusion!)
