possible Nazeing bowl.
« on: May 24, 2012, 02:19:29 PM »
although I think it's quite likely to be Nazeing, I've learned to be a little cautious with these swirled bubbled pieces.    There are a lot of rust coloured particles/spots in the glass, and it seems to be about the right sort of green as one of my other Nazeing vases, and looking in the book, this factory did offer some rather large platter shaped items.      Diameter is about 15.5"/395mm.    In the bottom of the bowl area the colour looks more flake shaped, and the centre has quite a humped kick.         A fair amount of wear scratches everywhere except the top of the flange/rim.
Not a very practical thing  -  footprint to usefulness ratio is a bit low and you'd need a rather large spare sideboard.
Grateful for anyone's thoughts, and thanks for looking. :)

The pattern looks very much like one I had id'd as Nazeing a while ago ;D

thanks to Keith and Bernard.     I do have Geoff. Timberlake's book, and thought I was on the right track, but always good to have opinions confirmed.    There is a coloured pic. at the top of page 42 showing a blue example, and the b. & w. picture on page 81 is also an identical shape.     However, obviously code 612 was open to some variation, as the the book also shows ribbed examples, and what appears to be folded rims.  :)
