German pressed glass bowl - fishy pattern...
« on: February 04, 2007, 07:56:00 PM »
Does anyone recognise this bowl please? It's a small bowl (4½" across the top excluding the lugs) with lugs either side, on one of which it says MADE IN GERMANY with a pattern of fish and reeds etc... around it.  Five little bumps on the base act like tiny feet.  Colourless pressed glass.

Oooh, ooh, I am sure Ivo has one of these in pale margigold Carnival. It baffled us then and it probably will baffle us now.

(But I am wondering about Walther......)

Glen, finally I deciphered your smallest note: Walther seems to be possible at least - for ME it's a question of quality - in this case the quality and colour is inferior, which leads to VEB Sachsenglas perhaps 1960ies

Pamela - yes, I agree with you - VEB Sachsenglas is very likely.

Thank you both for your replies. :)

I'd been wondering about the date:  as it says Made in Germany I'd assumed that meant either pre-Berlin Wall going up, or post-Berlin Wall coming down (so before 1961 or after 1989). 1960's puts them bang in the period of the partition of Germany, doesn't it?

So would that mean Made in Germany means what was then West Germany? (as opposed to Made in DDR as on my green jug.)  Ivo's little book says that VEB were in the GDR - but I cannot remember if GDR means the same as DDR,  or if GDR means West Germany. Can someone please clarify for me? Many thanks. :)

right you are Anne  ;D
GDR is German Democratic Republic and therefore about 1949 to 1989 - Eastern Germany

before I continue - I have to read below please :P

Read.
Well as far as I do remember, production from West Germany was marked (if at all) 'Made in Western Germany'
Made in Germany thus could be East production also imho - Ivo?

In this context, BTW, did you know that Japan industry has built up a retort city and called that 'usa' during the Sixties? The whole production was exported 'made in usa'  ;D
