I originally thought this might be Jobling, but after checking out all the Jobling references on here, I am really not so sure - the birds seem to be facing the wrong way.  These seem to be birds of paradise, you can see the streamers of their tails behind them.  Three of them, cameo to the outside no intaglio to the inside, very satin to the outside, very smooth to the inside, there is a registration number to the centre, but annoyingly, it is such an old punch that it just a line of little blobs... >:(

Does anyone recognise this?

Here are a batch of pix:

isn't it the Jobling 'Bird Pattern' which also came in the lambton shape? Just a guess  ;D

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 of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

Lynne and Pamela — It's Jobling.   In my opinion the finest of their bird bowls, and the only one known for certain to be the work of Etienne Franckhauser and his Paris workshop.   Pattern No. 2602, Reg. No. 806062 of 28th August 1935.

Thank you Bernard!  It is a wonderful bowl, no faults, and a beautiful colour when the light shines through it.

Now to write it up......

Hi Pamela, that's what I originally thought, but the birds on that pattern seemed to be facing outwards not inwards...

Ah, now, you see, Bernard, those thoughts were what made me think it wasn't Jobling, as it was also very similar in feel to your pears bowl!   :o

Are there not two or three variant patterns on the bird bowls?  I have a vague recollection of this being discussed some time ago... I'll try and find the earlier thread.

Edited to add: Found it!  Lynne here you go... http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,587.0.html

Oh yes!  that is it isn't it!!  This is very exciting!  I NEARLY got it right all by myself  ;D ;D ;D and then talked myself out of it !!  (story of my life...)

thank you so much - I didn't realise there were different variants, so assumed when I found the bowl on the Glass Ency site (I think - I looked at so much I am rather lost...) that it was a copycat.

By the bye, is this satin finish the same as the one I have seen described as Opalique?  Or just a satin finish?

No, yours is satin, Lynne.

This is Opalique (i.e. the trade name for Jobling opalescent inspired by Lalique - ref Ivo's little Glass Fact File)... isn't it splendid?  Jobling Birds on Glen's Carnival Glass site:
