I figured if a mere touch removes it, it probably has not been washed for 60 years, and it should enter the new era freshly scrubbed, the way the designer intended.

Photographs - my oh my what a difference a good camera makes ;-)

I don't suppose that it could have been produced for someone like Avon could it?  Having the decoration on it sounds a bit like their kind of thing maybe.  Just thinking out loud  :)

it looked more as if an elderly girl had a field day with a bottle of tippex - it was a mere schmere, not an enhancement.  And for avon the quality is FAR too high. Most Avon items are marked I believe.

sorry Ivo  :) I just meant Avon as an example of cosmetics supplier, in that the bowl might not have been produced as part of a 'set' but instead might have been a standalone piece given away with powder purchases as the 'first' purchase to be refilled at a later date.  btw I didnt' realise Avon provided their own range of glass.  Shall go and look them up.

Avon produced in Germany and in tbe US - and only pressed glass i believe. At least that is what they told me during a job interview in Munich back in 1983.
