Satin iridescent oval bowl ID please. ID = Walsh Walsh
« on: July 12, 2016, 05:15:58 PM »
Hi, I try to avoid buying damaged pieces but I just couldn't resist this one.
It's got a crack and I'm pretty sure its condition is terminal.
Apparently it should have been binned but for a small donation I was allowed to have it

Oval Bowl
L 20 cms
W 13 cms
H 11 cms
Wt 900gms

It has a polished pontil mark
There's quite a lot of base wear
Satin finish with some iridescence

Any help re its identity much appreciated- thanks for looking  :)

Hi John, so that's what mine used to look like--before it was dropped !
I try to console myself by thinking it's better to have an incomplete/ damaged version than not at all  >:(
Many thanks for posting your pics- much appreciated  :)

Now you've owned and handled one, you will be able to spot the bargain perfect one. They also often come in Canary Opalescent http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=2425

You knew it was something worth picking up, so well done
