Herman Richman was the front man for L. Straus & Sons. While nursing a cold I researched the patent on my bowl and read all the fine print, then went searching some more.
I have found that this is the Daisy and Diamonds oval bowl by L. Straus and Sons from October 24, 1916. This is a very late Brilliant Cut bowl with Daisy flowers.
How can I find out how much this beauty is worth? I search the major antique malls online and found very little by Straus. The only items I found were from his earlier years. Can anyone point me to a book or a site to find more about L. Straus values?
