Pressed glass float bowl - Glen, Pamela?

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,

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?
