Hello:
I'm relatively new to glass, and I recently acquired this piece. I have done a lot of research and I still cannot find any information about it. I know it's a compote, shell pink, and has slight sheen to it. I brought it to a friend of mine who has some knowledge of glass, and she did not know what it was, either. Any information anyone can provide would be a big help!

hello and welcome to GMB!
This pressed glass and looks fairly recent to me, probable origin Indonesia or Turkey ? This is just an idea, please look thoroughly for a possible mark under the base or even inside the bowl?

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Hi!
Thank you so much for replying! It doesn't have any marks on it at all- But it would make sense that it may come from Turkey or Indonesia- That would explain why I haven't found it anywhere! :) I will do some more research and see if I can find it. At this point I don't care much about the value, it was just bothering me that I didn't know what it was. Thanks again!
