Amber Glass Bowl info required if possible ID = Glaswerke Sindorf
« on: September 15, 2011, 05:09:18 AM »
I am hoping that someone may be able to give me some info relating to this bowl.  I have been on the internet extensively looking for this pattern in the Depression Glass sites.  Could this bowl pre-dates depression glass.

I am surprised that no one has been able to give me any info about this bowl, as so many of you have such extensive knowledge about glass.

Hi! To my mind it definitely looks like a typical 1930-1960 pressed glass dish.  I'm not an expert but let's hope one will come along.

I'm guessing you're in the States 5kazam, as you're calling this depression glass.  It's a bit hard to tell from your photograph, but is this item iridised? (have a petrol-like sheen as Carnival Glass does? :)

No, I'm not in the States.  I am in Australia.  Aussies too use the expression depression glass.  And no it is not irridescent like carnival glass.  It is straight forward amber glass 10" long x 81/2" wide.

 :hi: Rhonda, thank you for your email!

Your bowl was made by Rheinische Glaswerke Weber & Fortemps, Sindorf. It appears in their 1935 catalogue on page 27 and was also sold as 'basket'.

see PK

Its name is LIESEL, which is an abbreviation of Elisabeth  ;D

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Pamela, Thank you so much for the information.  My mystery is solved
I will see if I can find their catalogue on the net, and look it up.

Sorry, didn't see the link to PK, until after I posted my last reply.  Biggest problem for me there is that I cannot read German.  But thanks again Pamela

What I neglected to ask last time is, are these bowls a bit of a rarity these days, and do you have any idea how much my bowl would realistically fetch.
Thanks
