Looking for information about this piece, thank you.  Glass part is about 15.5cm x 5cm.  The metalwork is silver plated and lightly hammered.

Hi,

Your bowl is by Davidson Glass and dates from around the early 1970s. The metal is by Brama, a metalworks who merged with Davidson in the mid sixties. These bowls were often sold under the Brama name. You can see a similar piece to yours in the 1971 advert on Chris Stewart's site here: http://cloudglass.com/images/pg1971_1.jpg

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Further research suggests this model was called 'Crown'.
