Not Peter McDougall bowl - any info please!
« on: March 16, 2014, 03:14:44 PM »
Hi,
I purchased this bowl because I liked it - the seller thought it was Monart and was a bit upset when I told him it wasn't!
It does have some Ysart type features, the best I've come up with so far is possibly Peter McDougall. Can anyone shed any light on this?
It has a similar base to something else someone listed - can't remember what now but no definite attribution was given to that piece either. I suspect it could be 80's but that's just a guess really!
It measures 18cm diameter across rim, 7cm high.
The base has a very neat ground out pontil so it is concave, and polished, some age wear to base but not excessive.
There is a similar-ish one (but more detailed) on Ysart glass / Perthshire paperweight page.

Many thanks - any info much appreciated,
Roberta

I don't know enough about Peter's work to be able to tell, but he is still working, as far as I know, and he sells weights though the Caithness Visitor Centre in Crieff, and in the gift shop/cafe opposite that.

You might be able to contact him through them?

Is there much age-related wear?

It reminds me of Gray-Stan, the whorls and the way the colour is laid on.
This is a good example of the similarities I see

However, the pontil mark doesn't remind me of Gray-Stan and I don't know whether the glass is too thick for Gray-Stan.
Just thought I'd mention it.

Hi,
There is a bit of age related wear, not too much though and I think it dates to around the 80's?
If you look on Ysart glass
 http://www.ysartglass.com/Otherglass/Perthshire.htm
there is a greeny bowl that looks similar, that's the closest I've got to.

Thanks,
Roberta

and the bowls in that group have the white in which looks as though it's done in a similar way to yours.
It's probably best if you contact P McD and ask then.

Hi all,
I've managed to get in contact with Peter McDougall, he says it's not his bowl :(
So back to the drawing board - any ideas anyone?
Is it worth looking into Chic Young, Herbert Dreier?

Many thanks,
roberta

Can you do a better, closer more enlarged picture from the top showing the whorls more clearly please?
Might work better on a black background for that although the colour will probably bleach out.
Thanks
