Fab pics - thanks so much! :-*
It is the same bowl as the one in my link... however your pictures are fantastic!  You can see from the description I linked to that they do not mention the bowl is optically ribbed for example,whereas one of your pictures shows this clearly  :)

Sometimes knowing something such as the bowl is ribbed (and how many) can help towards id'ing other pieces - it's a tiny bit  irritating that the description on the web isn't complete really (although I am grateful just to have the pictures at all, no mean feat getting that collection photographed and uploaded).
Thanks again - I really really appreciate it.

My new fish bowl (with feet). It's a monster weighing in at  2.7kg.

11 inches in length and 7 inches in height.

Couldn't say for definite but my instinct would say Walsh Walsh.
Very similar to th ebowl on page 172 Victorian Decorative Glass, Gulliver.
Also has similarities with an unidentified epergne on page 195 of the same book.  Again that epergne makes me think Walsh Walsh but there is no id for it.

That book is worth every penny and more to anyone with an interest in Victorian glass.

Chris's is definitely Walsh Walsh. The colour is Electric Blue. A variant is shown in the advert on page 41 of the Crystal Years. The interior may be uranium; it certainly is for Crushed Strawberry. What is a little deceptive in the ad is that the trim is shown in white; that may be an artefact of the drawing or a variant

Thanks for that i can see it now in the glass of John Walsh Walsh like you say on page 41 with three legs, it's not uranium on the inside.

Thought of this when i picked this up which was in mint condition until i caught it on the corner of another piece of heavy glass, broken in half, now it's hanging on by a thread and uv glue.

That sinking feeling when you break something never gets any easier.

All in decorative glass book on the same page must be English and by the same maker.

oh I bet you could have cried!  I'm so sorry that's happened.
Thanks for sharing it though.  I think these are probably English but still haven't worked out a way of sorting them out as I think they perhaps were made by different makers - S&W, Walsh and Webb's amongst them.

Still not worked out who gilded my vase though am suspecting Webb's and Jules Barbe possibly.
