My Recent Find - Guess What it is!
« on: July 22, 2006, 12:39:16 PM »
I recently found this bowl at an antique mall.  I know what it is, but it is not what I thought it was when I bought it and it surprised me when I found out it's identity.

Small oval bowl


green applied threading

Bottom


The bowl is 5 inches long, 3 inches wide, and 2½ inches deep. It has a cut and polished edge and no pontil mark seen on bottom.

Who do you think made it?

The irregular and 'free' shape of the bowl doesn't look like the product of a factory. It looks more like something I would expect from a small studio maker (mid-late 20th C).

No, both guesses wrong. Not Loetz and it is not a studio artist piece.

No,  it is not Fenton. Although I can see why you think that since I am known as the Fenton Maven  :wink:

No, David.  I thought it might be English when I saw it.

It is very high quality glass.

I'll give a hint.  It is North American circa 1930s.

In which case, I seem to recall seeing something similar by Steuben.

Ding, ding, ding!!  You win the prize, David  :lol:

It has the fleu-de-lis and Steuben in a banner acid etch mark.

I only saw the mark after I had it home and was photographing it.
