Pressed glass - British? - ID please
« on: September 21, 2006, 07:05:47 PM »
Last ones for tonight...

#1 - Fruit bowl.  This is one of 3.  1 x 24.5 cm D, 2 x 20 cm D.  It's been suggested this might be Sowerby.

#2 - Hobnail bowl.  It's been suggested this might be Davidson.  19.5 cm D, 6 cm H.  I really, really like this piece.

#3 - Clear oval bowl.  Similar to a Davidson pattern from 1899, but I've only seen it in a round pattern.  19 cm x 14 cm x 3.5 cm.  No marks.

Hi Chris,
your # 2 :
similar to
Walther 'HANSE'
Brockwitz 'HAMMONIA'

a picture of the stand of this, obviously quality piece, could help further  :)

Walther items had no stand (as far as I can write here by heart)  :?:
Pamela
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)

Thanks for that, Pamela.  I already took a look at your site, and the closest match I could find for #2 was Walther Brillant.  I suspect this is the range, just that the one illustrated is smaller than mine.

It doesn't have a stand, by the way.  It's just a bowl.  It really is a nice piece, and the detail is very fine.  I'm dying to know who made it.

Best,
Chris
