Blue glass centrepiece
« on: July 14, 2012, 04:17:17 PM »
had a brilliant day picking up bargains  (All glass items !!) and came across these two blue items a bowl and matching vase, when I got them home I realised they fitted together to form a centrepiece. Does anyone know who made them ? I have had a look at Brockwitz and Walther catalogues but no luck so far.

This is no help at all but had to say I have seen a number of 'vases' with that style of foot and the bowls but never crossed my mind they fitted like that. It is a very effective piece. We live and learn. Can you add a picture of the base of the bowl please so I can see how they fit together. Thanks. Pete

I have seen victorian celery & sald bowls that fit like this, my mam has one. There are two deep grooves under the bowl for the foot of the vase to fit in quite securely. :)

This is a fascinating piece - thank you for sharing!

A very close match to the bowl is Rosice 1958 page 8 # 2939, please see Newhall CD

There are certain similarities in design to Brockwitz # 9086    but Rosice it is, I believe.

Vase not found yet, sorry.

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)

I really like the simplicity of the design and would imagine that not many survived as a pair. What was the name of the maker ?  As I said I have seen a few of the vase/stand part, one big piece in amber that had a curved foot, and will really keep my eyes open a bit more now. If only I could remember where I saw the bleedin amber one !! Time to retrace my steps... Pete

Pete, are you thinking of this Stolzle vase which is very similar ? Unfortunately I haven't got a bowl to try it  :) Pamela has found my blue bowl in the Rosice 1958 catalogue possibly the vase was in an earlier catalogue and it went out of fashion.
