Chinese bowl?
« on: January 28, 2019, 03:42:47 PM »
This is possibly Chinese,but you got to admit it's ok and you get a lot of glass for your money!16cm ht and heavy with small suspended bubbles what's not to like.Should be a great plant pot holder with the right plant.

 :) I think you are 100% correct on all counts.
For cheap and cheerful, it's absolutely wonderful and I have just the right plants to put in it...
It is a bit squint, but it has an applied rim. Where it goes wrong in some bits is more than made up for in other bits where it went really well.

I'm thinking about a big bright Sarracenia purpurea. ;D

Having had a good look around I'm guessing the influence for this piece would be Gunner Cyren,which would have been fully signed.

Looking at one particular piece in Gunnar Cyren's salamander range and how some of the rims are applied I thought I might post a few more pictures,plus receiving a polite email from a Scandinavian glass collector asking me if I sell on eBay in relation to another piece I had posted recently,........forgive my paranoia if this is a Chinese copy.

No. It is modern and Chinese in origin, it has all the right characteristics, bright colours, thick and heavy and not the best workmanship. I have seen several in recent years, wishful thinking does not make it something it is not.
