Please could someone help us to identify this piece of glass. The bowl is about 8/9 inches in diameter and is similar to carnival glass but without the iridescence.

Many thanks

Hi, and welcome to the board! Given the colour, I wondered whether this might be relatively contemporary and someone like L.E. Smith? It might be worth checking www.chataboutdg.com.

Brockwitz original pattern name: Zurich. Carnival Glass collectors gave it the name Curved Star.

More here, if you're interested in the factory and the patterns etc.

You lot are so clever

This piece has been donated to the hospice I work for so it will probably be auctioned now to raise money

Thank you so much
