Hello Frank

Many years ago I sent you a picture of a pink striped bowl, identified and catalogue by you as shape BI.   About 4/5 years ago, I bought a yellow striped bowl which I think is possibly shape PH.   Today I took delivery of another striped bowl, this time green/white striped  thinking is may also be a PH, but it's not.   Shape is different. I'm looking at all 3 bowls on my desk and I'm wondering whether it is in fact shape NI

This is the second time I've typed this message - the pictures were too large for the the e/mail :huh:

Is there anyway I can send these photos to someone who will be able to do what is necessary to display them to start a discussion.
Many thanks
Mary

Not PH - FH

Mary, I am not sure why your photos would be too large for an email, but try sending them to me and I will "do the necessary" if I can.

Hi Kevin

Many thanks

I've sent you an e/mail with the various photos of the 3 bowls from different but hopefully corresponding angles.   I appreciate it is really difficult to state categorically these 3 bowls are all different shapes, but from what I've seen of the shapes in the Ysart Glass book and on the webpage there is a query with identifying shape NI as it is so similar to FH.   I'm not saying my green/white striped bowl is NI which is why I'd like opinions from others.

The pink striped bowl has been identified as shape BI and looks to be correctly identified by Frank.   I have always (probably incorrectly) assumed the yellow striped bowl is shape FH, the shape of the bowl is definitely different to the other 2.

Whatever the final thoughts are, I just think I'm extremely lucky to own 3 striped bowls.

Mary

Green and pink are both BI. Quite a normal amount of shape variation.

But the yellow/amber... it is probably another variant of BI... may just possibly a variant of WC but that seems less likely as while the shape varies quite a lot I have not seen it spread wide like this.

The other shapes you mention are shaped feet, not applied.

So I would say 3 times BI.

The applied feet on the green and amber bowls are similar, but the pink foot is completely different - splayed and much wider.   I will take more pictures of the applied feet for you to see the difference.   The amber bowl is really different in shape to the other two.
