Iridescent glass dishes, acid-etched 'Allemagne'
« on: November 26, 2016, 04:54:53 PM »
Can anyone help here? These dishes are iridised and feature a smooth polished pontil with the word 'Allemagne' acid-etched there. This, of course, is 'German' but in French, IYSWIM! My limited experience with WMF says no, and the iridescence is also very lightly crazed giving it a slightly rough feel.

So is it a German make that was marked in France, or a copy, or what? Any help much appreciated.

How about Poschinger they produced some of this Iridescent stretch type of glass?

Thanks Greg, although Poschinger does appear to be the silky smooth iridised glass. However, I did read somewhere that some iridescence doesn't wear well and it almost looks like the surface (not the glass) is crizzled - whether that's by accident of design I can't really tell.
