Walther Viktoria Comport
« on: April 07, 2012, 08:50:30 AM »
My first post, so bear with me if attachments do not appear.
Last week I managed to acquire, what I believe to be, the base of a blue satin Walther Viktoria comport, as seen on page 036 in the 1953 Sachsenglas catalogue. It was being sold as a blue candlestick, here in Melbourne.
If anybody has the peg bowl that would help me complete this set I would love to hear from them.
I, hopefully, have attached 2 photos of the base that others might like to confirm for me, or inform me that I am wrong.
Pamela would love to hear your opinion on this piece
Thanks, Neil

Hello Neil and welcome to GMB! Glad you've joined.
That is beautiful and I do appreciate to finally see a real Viktoria for the first time! The matching pegged bowl will be difficult to find, I'm afraid.
Give my regards to Diane, please  :-*
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)

Hi there
I have attached a blue Diana bowl on top of the blue Viktoria bowl and I personally think it's a good match?
Best wishes Nige
