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)  :?:

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 of worldly things 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
