ID help needed Green Glass Bowl stamped FRANCE
« on: April 27, 2011, 01:43:30 PM »
Can anyone help identify the maker or pattern of this bowl please?

The bottom is stamped FRANCE and it measures approx 11 inches (28cm) across from handle to handle.

I have one of these too but have never been able to find the maker. The design is fantastic and almost certainly dates from the 30s. Is yours uranium glass? My example glows wonderfully under UV.

That's a shame Mosquito, I have looked and looked for the maker too without success. And no mine isn't uranium although I suspected it might be when I saw it shining and twinkling in the sun at a boot sale!
Thanks for your help. :)

Hello
This looks very similar to a Pierre D'avesn bowl I used to own,where the handles were more scroll like.It had the same sort of pattern on the glass too.Maybe worth checking out?
