blue lidded bowl
« on: April 14, 2012, 12:23:28 PM »
Light blue lidded bowl which is frosted on the inside. It has a neat stand ring like pressd glass should - but it does not cry out SU at once.  Anyone recognise it? The model looks deco - but could be later.

Thank you for looking. The inside is frosted, not cased or anything.

The colour looks so very untypical compared to other pressed glass we see here.
 ???
So perhaps not german or bohemian, but rather the regions, which are also under-represented
here member-wise... french, belgian? Donīt have a clue really - obviously.

I thought maybe 40's 50's  Belgian and was searching in that area.
Nothing so far - and of course I have no idea really either.  It's quite masculine despite the pale blue colour.

Those are good suggestions. I thought maybe Belgium too, or Finnish or Bagley, I'll keep looking.

This reminds me very much of the large pot from Davidson's 360 trinket set. The colour is certainly possible for Davidson as I've had other known Davidson items in this shade.

There's a picture of an amber cloud set in this pattern on the Stewarts' website here: http://cloudglass.com/trinket.htm It's not easy to make out, but I think the pattern quite similar - the only difference seems to be that the cloud example shown is a little less deep, especially in the broad band arond the sides. The shape of the knob & the ringed pattern look identical though. I wonder if this was possibly an alternative pot for the set?

I see what you mean. I'll try and get a better pic of he bottom and the inside later today.
Maybe I should have mentioned that I removed a band of floral decoration in cold enamel which I feel was amateur work . It also came off with a nail and a sponge - which was an improvement....

That might help to place it in the 1940s/50s and might have been a mistake. A fair number of British firms used cold enamel to jazz up their dated products. It might have looked amateurish but was probably professional.
