Yellow (uranium?) frothy bubbly bowl Scottish?
« on: September 15, 2012, 01:40:53 PM »
Miles out of my depth even with the description.
Thought Scottish maybe purely based on the fact all the other pieces are? Thin and lightweight uncased glass some of the bubbles are clear and can be felt from the inside. It's 6" across
Thanks Chris

Not uranium, doubt Scottish, probably Nazeing. :)

would agree the colour does look like Nazeing yellow Chris  -  and if from that factory, then this shape appears to have a catalogue reference No. 86/1 (bowl with curved base) - although regret can't add anything re the size.

Did consider Nazeing I have a couple of bucket vases in my album but the casing and polished pontil mark on these led me away :-[
Thanks Chris

It looks like a heat-finished pontil mark . ???

I know :)  and not cased either  that's what led me away from Nazeing because the other pieces I have are cased with a polished pontil mark.

My bigger pieces of Nazeing are packed away in one of the sheds  -  and all I have indoors is a single small clear cased vase with a snapped/heat finished pontil  -  so would seem they did both.     Just to be sure I'll check the others tomorrow.
Unfortunately, from what I can see the catalogue doesn't give the full range of sizes.

I would think (and from my observations) that larger bits tend to be the ones which are cased and have their pontil marks treated - the smaller posies and baskets and pin dishes tend not to be.

Funnily enough saw a bucket vase today same type of finish but more of a green colour cased ( I think?) with a polished out pontil mark like the others I have seen but with a rather crude folded over rim.
Interesting to compare but at £22 not that interesting, but I do know the seller so if it's still there next time I go in I will get a photo.

I have a small mushroom posy in this and also a green powder pot that I think is the same maker.  Both on here somewhere and maker unknown so far.  It's a curious type of decoration.  My yellow posy has a curious greeny tint in the glass and is cased at the base, the green powder pot isn't cased if I remember correctly and is also quite lightweight.
