Carnival bowl question - ID = Sowerby, English Hob & Button
« on: February 19, 2006, 09:01:48 PM »
I just bought this for my Mum (who does like Carnival!) but would love to know what the pattern and maker is before I give it to her. Could anyone (hello Glen! :)) help please?

Looks a bit like my Sowerby "Chunky or English Hob and Button" bowl

I've always wondered what these metal figures are all about as I have a cake stand like that but all in metal. I sometimes see Ballerina versions too. I recently saw one with a very flat looking ballerina figure and a clear glass top.

Brilliant! Thank you so much again Glen, and TC too of course. I hadn't made the connection as the wavy edge threw me off the trail there.  :oops:  The colour and irridescence on the one I found is amazing... it just lit up the whole shop with its glow! Just hope Mum will like it. :)
