Two European? carnival bowls
« on: January 23, 2007, 09:26:48 PM »
I haven't been able to identify these yet  :-\ , although I'm working on it. The closest I can come to this one
 (http://s20.photobucket.com/albums/b217/lustrousstone/th_IMG_1003.jpg)
is Kokomo, but that only seems to be a rose bowl. As Glen says there are too many stars  ??? Click to enlarge
And this one
 (http://s20.photobucket.com/albums/b217/lustrousstone/th_IMG_0991.jpg)
I'm veering between Sowerby from the edge design and Rindskopf from the pattern and the colour. Click to enlarge

The top one has good irridescence and a slightly dodgy shape. The pattern from the middle of the star upwards has lost its definition. 9 inches across.

The big one seems huge, but its only 10 inches across. Pale golden irridescence. It's probably one of those fit-on-top-of-a-comport bowls, as the ground foot has a cogged outer rim

Both these items are (to the best of my knowledge) currently not confirmed as to maker. The first one has been named "Star & Studs", the second one "Petals & Prisms". I have long suspected Rindskopf to be the maker of "Petals & Prisms" but I have been unable to verify that from catalogues.

You are absolutely correct, Christine, that the large "Petals & Prisms" bowl fits atop an upturned (stemmed) sugar.

Thanks Glen, seems like I'm learning something by working my way through a certain book  ;).

Now what I want to know is why is one third of my CG collection named but without parents: Sentinel Rose, Split Diamond (creamer and bowl), Petals and Prisms, Stars and Studs, apart from the plain ribbed bowl for "grapes", which has neither name nor parents  :'(? How come they're the ones I seem to find?

Oh it's not just you  :o I have plenty of those. In fact it was the fact that there were so many "unknowns" that I started to research back in the early 1990s. Possibly the best "eureka moment" was when I uncovered Rindskopf as a maker of Carnival - that helped move a lot of "unknowns" into the attributed category.

UK collectors are lucky ( ::)) in that a lot of mystery items do tend to turn up here......... 

It's all part of the Magic & Mystery (now you know where our first book title came from  :-\).

EDITED TO ADD: What's the Sentinel Rose pattern? My mind's gone blank?
