Help with ID of this glass bowl please ~ WMF IKORA ?
« on: November 09, 2006, 03:17:01 PM »
Just the one bowl which I'd like help with please!

It's about 10.5" diameter and 2.75" deep (26.5cm x 7cm). As you know, I'm only a beginner but, at the risk of embarrassing myself, the colours remind me of Murano and the decoration with the yellow 'splodges' look to me like Maltese, perhaps M'dina. Good and heavy, with a polished pontil.

Any help would be truly appreciated. Many thanks, John.

mmmmm I have quite a few pieces of Mdina and this doesn't look like anything of theirs I've seen before - the shape or the colouring isn't right IMHO. It's not splodgy or splashy enough and is a little too perfect in shape ... I'm not an expert either and am happy to be corrected but my hunch just from the photos would be that it's NOT Mdina.

Thanks for that Pip. The shape actually reminded me of a Whitefiars bowl, but I've been told it's definitely not WF ~ I didn't think it was because of the colours, but thought I'd try on the WF site.
I know what you mean about not splodgy enough for M'dina, but it's the closest I could think of!!
Will keep my fingers crossed that someone may be able come up with a suggestion.

I thought the same thing because of the colour combo, but it lacks the white netting which is so typical for Ikora - so if it is it is not a standard piece.

Hi Pamela & Ivo, and thanks for your thoughts. After seeing your earlier replies, I made a start trying to find any similar Ikora pieces to compare it with but without much luck.
I've just come back to my PC and found your last message Pamela ~ am I right in thinking that, from the link you posted, it is definitely Ikora? I can't see anything the same there, but it certainly has some similarity to #v32. Should there be a makers mark on it if it's Ikora? Or any other 'distinguishing features'?
Sorry if these are silly questions, but I'm intrigued!
Thanks again for your help, John.

Just to give you the full picture, I got it at auction very recently where it was in a lot with a very good Whitefriars red/blue/purple streaky tumbler vase from the 1930's (which has been confirmed on the WF web site). This could confirm my feelings that the bowl is good quality. The marks on the foot would suggest that it has some age, and it weighs just over 1.6kg ~ that's all I can tell you!
Cheers, John.
PS I'm going to change the topic subject to include Ikora, in case there are any more experts out there.
