Is this a John Walsh Walsh bowl?

John — It's unfooted in the sense of no added foot.   Now I can see the profile I am not sure whether it is A4850 or A4809 — it is somewhere in between.   If you look in Reynolds for yourself, check the Iridescent pattern shapes as well.

In common with most of the contributors to the GMB I don't like talking monetary values, for the simple reason that I will almost certainly be wrong by a large margin.

Thanks for that Bernard.

I don't have the Reynolds book, so can't check it out but will see what I can find elsewhere, or get a copy! I appreciate your position on giving monetary values ~ will have another chat with Mary, whose family it came through, and see what she wants to do.

Good luck with the show tomorrow, and thanks again, John.

Here's my green vase. If there was a mark it's disappeared under the wear. Is it Pompeain? Its 7.5 inches tall and 6.25 inches top diameter. Click to zoom.

As you know, I'm not an expert but, when I compare the bubbles in your vase to my bowl, they look the same except they run round the bowl as opposed to up and down as they do in your vase!

Also, the bowl has a nicely polished pontil mark ~ don't know if this helps.

I'm sure Bernard will be able to give a positive answer one way or the other.

Off Topic: did you know that using a fancy font in HTML is entirely dependant on users having that specific font installed on their systems?

I have Papyrus on my computer, is that because it's an AOL font David?

Thank you for putting the GMB link on your listing John.   :D

Hi Max, no it's all down to basic HTML principles. As the page you design is dependent on the viewer's installation, you are limited to what are called 'web-safe fonts': Times, Arial, Verdana, Tahamo to name four.

It's all down to the ability of the user's browser to render the page with the available resources :gulp:

Ooops, I feel a Cafe coming on :oops:  :wink:

Thanks for the info re the font ~ I hadn't realised that! I compose my descriptions on MS Word, and sort of assumed that everyone else would be able to see it!
Does it look awful if the viewer's PC can't render the font, or does it revert to one of the 'web-safe' fonts?
I hoped you wouldn't mind me putting the link in the listing, so thanks for that too.
Cheers, John.
