walther advice please???
« on: August 15, 2013, 04:08:54 PM »
Today i saw a lovely art deco centrepiece for sale in an antique centre on my return out of interst i looked up what it was, It seems to be a walther goose girl in a pelikan bowl with the holder the set was £45 and good condition having looked it up it appears the goose girl is fairly scarce is it worth a 20mile round trip to buy the thing in the morning?? Im not sure if £45 is reasonable?
Maybe someone can help thanks.

Hi

Ive just had a gander through the Walther 1936 catalogue and I cannot find any reference to a goose girl centrepiece anywhere...would therefore presume its another manufacturer. Any particular reason you thought it was Walther and scarce..??

Regards

Gareth

Dan, just curious here: which colour?

If in good condition all over, the price for a three-piece-centrepiece is adequate for a keen collector like me  ;D

Hi again...apologies for my myopic vision...I looked again and see its from a Walther set called Belvedere.... a small photograph and hadn't noticed the geese ..... and youre right ... a really scarce item that I've not seen before and with the number of Walther collectors out there probably a very good price...maybe they'd negotiate down too .....

first appeared in 1936

Gänseliesel might look a little lost in a huge Flamingo bowl but to find the matching Belvedere should be quite easy  ;)

Oh thanks guys will take a trip down there first thing saturday morning i thought it was a good buy but had just bought a marina set in uranium and didnt really have enough ready cash on me at the time, Im hoping too sell it on agasin if anybody interested in it. Thanks for the link pamela that is the right one in the right holder just the bowl that isnt a good match being the one for the pelikan more often. The whole set is in a vivid blue colour pamela.
