Pretty little iridescent dish / saucer - maker and date?
« on: October 17, 2006, 02:16:45 PM »
This is such a pretty little dish. The top rim is ground flat, and then gilded, and it is coated top and bottom with a very oystery iridescence.  Just under 5 ins dia. (125 mm) I have 6 of them - I wondered if they are actually saucers, with no cups?  They have a rather Edwardian feel to the gilding in my eyes.

Hi

I believe this pattern was was past down as companies took over others

I think it was originated by Lobmeyr but also (and mainly) produced by Moser (for whom the 4 lobes became almost a trademark)

It comes in dishes, bowls, glasses etc c1890 but made for quite a few years

Cheers

Mike

Thank you so much Mike - do you think they are saucers without cups, or originally made to be dishes?

They could well have had cups if they were destined for the UK Market

More likely they has little bowls -French Market

I've seen them with both

Cheers

yes, I can imagine them with bowls, like little finger bowls.  Fortunately, I think they are quite charming just as they are!

On my selling website there is one of a pair of matching glasses.

My photo is not as good as yours -but it has the same petrol like irridisation

cheers
