A tri corner amber splatter bowl
« on: October 01, 2012, 10:29:58 PM »
I have a tri corner amber and white splatter glass bowl and would like to know who the maker is. It measures 17cm x 5cm high and weighs 397grams. The underside has a very rough circular pontil mark (?)
Can anyone help please?

Hi Keith,
Thank you for the message. If you find out that your bowls were identified and attributed I would be grateful if you could let me know. In the meantime ,I'll keep searching. Would you descrribe them as 'spatter glass'?

I think mine is the same.

It has a generic 'foreign' label that someone may be able to attribute - to country at least  ???

very rough and ready finish.... huge lumps of broken white glass rolled into the body

but I quite like it  :)

cheers

Hi bfg,
Yes your bowl is almost identical!! Thank you so much for that. Isn't the underside unusual? Very chunky and course but I think it adds to the interest and must make it easier to identify. Now maybe someone else will be able to attribute the bowls to a country of origin if not maker.

"Foreign" often denotes post-war (1950-1960s) production from Japan or Germany.
