Alabaster glass question.
« on: January 10, 2017, 06:55:27 PM »
I now have two of these bowls the darker one I found in my Christmas stocking  ::) :o question is the lids  are darker than the bowls so do I have two bowls with 'married' lids or are they all like this  ??? ;D ;D

No I don't think so - i.e. no I don't think they are married.  They vary. 
Perhaps Nigel might have a better input but imho there could be reasons why they vary and why they aren't a mismatch.

Any time I've seen these they are just the same as yours, a lighter colour on lid.

Keith I believe  that the bases are cased, that is to say they are cased in a very thin casing of the white opaline, and the lids are not.
However ... not in all instances possibly.  I think it is possible there are some items which are cased and some not.  And this might depend on when (what years/time period) they were made and therefore, who made them at the time.

But this is just what I believe from what I've read.

It is also possible that they just vary depending on the maker of the item - again iirc from what I have read.
