I think No 3 is a Davidson bowl. Part of the 714 fruit set. See here www.cloudglass.com/galllerybetweenwar.htm

On page 18 of Andy McConnell's new book 20th-Century Glass (less than £17 delivered from Amazon.com) there is a vase with the same stippled chevrons and scalloped top as bowl No 4. This is press-marked Deustchland.


He's making the point that a bowl with similar colouring and pattern is probably also German and by the same manufacturer. However, I have just realised that he's definitely right about the first but possibly wrong about the second. His unidentified bowl is Walther's Athene, which has a much more delicate pattern than the vase he shows. I also think Athene is frosted rather than stippled - mine's in a box somewhere...

I agree -I looked at the Athene bowl on Pamela's site and zoomed into  the enlarged pictures - the chevrons look frosted to me.

I have carefully checked my bowl again and can find no pressmark
Many thanks

One of the points Andy was trying to make was that not all glass from the same manufacturer is marked, even within a range.

Your bowl is almost certainly 1930s German because the pattern is   exactly the same as on the marked German vase he shows.

But I did read the caption incorrectly yesterday because he actually says, similarity of colour and design, i.e., pink with chevrons, are insufficient to attribute to the same manufacturer and country when comparing the vase with your design on it and an Athene bowl :oops:  :oops:
