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?

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 of worldly things 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!
