Hi Nicky,

Welcome to the board.  This is not really my era but somebody will be along soon who can help you.  They'll almost certainly ask for a picture of the bottom of the bowl as it tells so much about how it was blown/moulded/manufactured.  If you could post a picture of the bottom then I am sure somebody will help you identify it very quickly.

This is  very close to Josef Inwald, Bohemia ( today Czech Republic) - pattern PICADILLY, around 1924

edited to add: having read Glen Thistlewood's article  on this pattern again: probably Sowerby?

Glen is an esteemed member of GMB and hopefully will comment on yours  ;)

Very good photos, Nicky!

The outer finish looks sand-blasted to me, and the base is not polished. Therefore I would rule out Inwald now, and tend to Sowerby...

Glen, please!  :)
