A set of four small Carnival glass bowls

I seem to be having difficulty identifying this one. The textured pattern looks like hundreds of little stars made from lines. The iridescence is barely visable and virtually impossible to see on one of the bowls. It measures 5 inches diameter.

They should put a horses head in the middle just to make it easier for me to identify.  :lol:

It's a European piece that collectors call "Stippled Waves".

(If they were very foamy waves then they could be white horses, TC!  :lol: )

I didn't get the joke.  :?

first look at it is Walther NORA but I have to dig the catalogues for that again and again and again - we have had it here previously, didn't we??
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)
