Hi all,

My latest Carnival addition: A three footed bowl.  :D

I have looked through my book and on the internet, but I cannot find this pattern.  :cry:


 :shock: Click to enlarge :shock:

All help appreciated, as always.  :D
TIA

You've found me a puzzle, Della  :lol:  

I don't think I have seen this piece before. Forgive me - I can't even start looking through catalogues and archive right now as I have to go to the dentist.......  :roll: yuck

Hi Della - I'm still mystified by your pretty bowl. Can I ask if the bottom of the feet are ground flat? They remind me of my Walther "Waltraut" bowl.

Still looking........

Hi, would I be wrong in saying that the feet are typical of german glass?

It does look a bit similar in some ways to the Chevron pattern by Walther
http://www.ddoty.com/chevron.html

I have just found this "Bruno"

What do you think?

Hi Glen,
Yes the feet are ground flat, I presume this is because the mould lines run down the centre of each foot.

Hi Tiger,
The 'Bruno' pattern looks very similar, but there are indents above the diamonds, between the panels on that pattern, and not on mine.

'Tis baffling. :P

Scroll feet are found on plenty of USA Classic Carnival items (e.g. Fenton). Most European Carnival usually has a ground base, without feet. But there are examples of scroll feet from (for example) Walther, Brockwitz and Inwald. They differ from the Classic USA examples in that the European ones are (usually) ground flat.

So Della's bowl is almost certainly European - and my "gut feel" is Walther - but I could well be wrong.
