Pressed glass float bowl - Glen, Pamela?
« on: December 03, 2006, 09:52:57 AM »
Hi everyone,

I don't recognise this float bowl at all. I'm neither the buyer nor the seller, just an interested watcher.

Thanks

Hi Cathy - isn't it gorgeous! I had noticed it too and wondered who the maker could be. I'm afraid I don't know the answer though.

Cathy, I do still believe it's a Jobling of the Thirties - see 1934 page 9 - Glen, please!!!!
There is a family also to Brockwitz of course - but we have got no proof for a single item like that.

The quality of the glass in this auction says: I am new!

but this is my very very personal private thinking - please do not value  :shock:

Definitely not Jobling. Pamela, I think you are referring to the parrot motif in the 1934 catalogue. this was a much smaller item, available as a decorative figure or as the centre to an ashtray. It is quite different to this centrepiece figure. The bowl doesn't look like any Jobling pattern I am familiar with either.

Thanks everyone,

The quality was what made me feel curious about it as well.

Perhaps someone may know the pattern to this bowl?

Is that the Jobling pattern?

Are there any other companies that make these turret style feet other than Davidsons and Jobling?

For anyone interested, (i.e. me :) ) here's the Jobling version, in the middle of an ashtray. Clearly totally different.

This is more like it (though I can't see the detail well enough). Tony Hayter says Czech.

Does anyone know what the Cambridge cockatoo looked like?
