Rose bowl English or Bohemian ?
« on: November 15, 2012, 05:04:16 PM »
 Hi, i am trying to i/d this pink satin finish bulbous  bowl with ruffled rim and decorated with ivy, glows yellow under UV light , 3.250 inches tall and 2.50 inches dia. It has 3 applied legs and a small concave pontil mark. I could not find anything similar with the 3 legs but plenty of images similar to the pink colours. Some Webb items were similar in decoration but really not sure. any help would be much appreciated.

It's Burmese, a nice find whether Webb or Mt. Washington.   The decoration looks like Jules Barbe workshop to me if it is then it's Webb.   You need an expert on this, and I'm not, as some of the plants shown are fairly well-known, others are rare.

See Hajdamach I Appendix 7.3 pp4334 Sequence of floral decorations painted on Burmese glassware.

I would say definitely Webb; the decor is right, the colour is right, the pontil mark is right and the shape is right. Jammy b***** Ms green here

Here is its cousin, which you've just confirmed as Webb for me

PS It's not a rose bowl, rose bowl rims curve in and do not flare out again.
