Got this bowl today and I am not sure if it may be a Walther piece or another glass factory. I have been through all the bowls (attributed and unattributed) on http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/ and no luck, unless I missed it (I did go through them twice!)

It is part frosted pressed / moulded glass and was absolutely filthy, but has cleaned up ok. 9" diameter, 4" tall approximately

Any help with the maker and rough age or a pointer in the right direction would be appreciated.

I'd say, probably Nachtmann - they specialised in absolutely filthy glass. Sorry, couldn't resist that.

LOL :-)

Thanks Ivo, I will do some googling on Nachtmann bowls and see if I can find it.

Have spent hours searching yesterday, no luck - yet, I will keep searching, but I can see similarities to other Nachtmann part frosted bowls.

Explanation here as to relationship between Auguste Walther and Waltherglas - there is one. :)
