Stolle Neimen of Poland Ballerina Plate
« on: December 20, 2006, 05:13:48 AM »
I'm still trying to work out what 'turned under' and 'turned up' edge meant. Was that a description of the thickness at the edge?

By the way, here's another piece in the same family of pattern. I'd love to know who was responsible for it. This one has concave rays between the blocks, and an etched ballerina. Would it be related to Hortensja, I wonder?

BTW, Cathy's ballerina looks absolutely Portieux
there is this ashtray in my collection:

of which I was told from collectors in France that it is possibly Portieux  :o

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
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 moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Cathy - your ballerina dish was made by Stolle Niemen - POLAND. (Huty Szklane J. Stolle "Niemen" SP) circa 1926-1935

Lots more to add about this and other Polish patterns - it's going to take time to sort it all out.

Wow, brilliant Glen! Thanks so much again!
