Desna Winged Horses
« on: February 29, 2012, 06:59:39 AM »
I have a Desna Green Winged Horse Bowl, It does not have the Ashtray Indentations that I can find on various sites etc. but is smooth right around the bowl and is not signed on the bottom as Desna. could this be a early Desna piece, a reproduction or how does one tell?  When did the Winged Horses first come out.  Hoping some of the very knowledgeable people on the board may be able to help. With Thanks JJ

Can we see a picture. It may be that what you have is an original: Desna stuff is mostly based on old moulds, i.e., its stuff is reproductions.

This is a photo as requested. The mark at the back must be camera flash. Thanks JJ

Thank you Lustrousstone for the time to look and reply.
The base has what appears to be 3 leather pieces glued to be the feet. ( I purchased it this way as a Master Open Salt, it probably is not one but I love glass and it appealed to me)  The is a chip on one of the feet that is only visable when it is upside down. I have enclosed a Photo.
