Footed Bowl ,19thC? Olive green, frosted?acid etched?
« on: February 23, 2007, 12:53:58 PM »
Not sure where to start looking for this one, maybe someone may point me in the
right direction ::)
Its an Olive green footed bowl, I think its 19thCentury(maybe quite early?)
or of course it may be early 20thC ???
Its opaque, but i think thats just the finish its been given, i presume acid to give it a
frosted look and slight feel. Bowl is very nice , the foot ,quite thick and makes me think
its got a good age. Broken pontil.
Any help welcome :D

No worries Ivo,
it just came with a shelf of stuff i got at auction yesterday,
you seem quite certain, do you know where and when it comes from :-\
It certainly fooled me though :-[

if i knew where and when it came from i would have told you outright, Andy! This type of glass appears on fleamarkets on a regular basis - but if they are made in Morocco or in Spain, or in the Ukraine (or even farther afield) is uncertain.  Any attempt at attribution would be speculative....
