Glass Dessert Dishes - ID = Hortensja, Poland
« on: December 03, 2017, 12:35:56 AM »
Hi,

I got 12 of these beautiful glass dishes in an estate sale auction and know nothing about them.  Based on the quality of the other items from the estate, I'm sure these must be a known pattern somewhere!  I'd appreciate any help.  Pictures attached

They measure 5 1/4" top to bottom and across the bowl is 5"

Hello and welcome to GMB!

This pressed pattern was made by Polish company Hortensja - seen first in their 1937 catalogue, however the stem of yours is less ornate. Please see page 4/50 in the link below.

Given that you've got even twelve of these, I believe they could be of their 1970ies production - please scroll down to page 42 of Pressglas-Korrespondenz 2013-4

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)

Thank you so very much.  I never would have found that on my own.  I appreciate your expertise and the welcome!
