Pressed Glass Centrepiece ID help Sowerby or Czech?

Here's a uranium lady in the same bowl http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7400098694

and another in a definite Sowerby bowl
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7346461046

These ladies have also been discussed before
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,2981.msg22971.html#msg22971

I think she's probably Czech - anyway she's lovely and as other women go, pretty cheap to keep :oops:  :lol:

Thanks for those links, Christine.

The Sowerby bowl in the second auction is their 2565 bowl. It is also found in scarce blue Carnival Glass (oddly enough it almost NEVER surfaces in the UK in Carnival) when it is known as "Flora". It's seen in the usual Sowerby colours and is a gorgeous piece of design, with cameo roses on the underside.

It's the base on Paul's "lady" that is challenging - it's very distinctive.

Here's one from the Black-Poppy website, sadly unknown, but it shows that the same figure has a different bowl.

I must admit that I'm glad to have found something interesting as I've bought so little pressed glass in the last 10 years, but I just took a shine to this and at just £4 figured the downside was worth the chance, anyway she is all cleaned up and sitting in the dining room.
Just by the way the first glass I ever really collected was the Walter Crane Sowerby pieces, long since sold off unfortunately.

I also once had this lady in, which was sold to me as Walther and is documented on 1st Glass Man as such (tho I dont see it on Pamela's site)
http://www.1st-glass.1st-things.com/gallery-frogs/slides/pinksatinladyfrog1.html

however, the bowl mine came in is, I believe, Sowerby? and I have subsequently seen the bowl plus frog on eBay.UK a number of times
and both called Sowerby :?:

can anyone shed some light on that one?

Cheri, I can't see the detail on your bowl, but it does look like the one I mentioned above (2565) that is known in Carnival as "Flora" - and is undoubtedly Sowerby.

here is a closer view Glen. It has pressed roses in the pattern. I dont think it has the same shape as the 2565....a bit more shallow maybe and doesnt have the deep scalloped edge that I see on that one in the link

As I mentioned, I bought the bowl and pink lady as a set, and still see them sold as sets on eBay sooo would I be correct that the lady is also Sowerby then, and not Walther?

I have the same bowl as the one on the Black Poppy site that TC posted the link to, but mine has a fluted flower holder instead of a figure. As the pattern appears the same as a plate I have I've always thought this was a Davidson bowl. Christine, you know the plate I mean - it's the one you were seeking to match your 714 fruit set bowls.  

Could Paul's bowl be a Davidson one as well given that we have matches between frogs and bowls and plates?

Here's the homepage of the collection.

AlmasAttic, this is in the Sowerby section of that site and looks the same as yours?

On closer inspection the rim on yours curves the other way.  :o
