glass Art Deco Ramses powder bowl - ID = Phoenix Glass Co
« on: May 25, 2012, 10:15:59 PM »
I have this hexagonal frosted lidded box which appears to be a powder bowl for  a cosmetics company called Ramses based in Paris and New York. I am guessing 1930's. Any ideas on manufacturer please. It has a kneeling nude figureon top of lid and nude figures on each of the corner panels. All thoughts appreciated John

What colour is it? I don't think it's uranium. The glow isn't strong enough.
