Title: Blue pressed glass powder bowl
Post by: Anne on April 06, 2009, 03:38:47 AM
This one has me baffled. I've only seen it once before (in pink on eBay with matching candlesticks and a Sowerby tray which was a pretty good colour match.)

The base is polished shiny like Inwald items, with a star cut pattern in its centre. The edges of the base are bevelled to the bottom of the pot sides - you can just see the bevels on the photo below.

I stood this alongside a pot made at Libochovice and it's not the same blue, neither does it match the Bagley or Sowerby blues I have. Can anyone suggest the maker please?

Yes Anne, I noticed your request, but unfortunately: so far no idea at all I'm afraid  :cry:
Perhaps you may try another photo versus an angle, please? and base?

Thanks Pamela, I'll do that.   :kissy:    (I wasn't hustling you but as there's been so many posts I thought it'd maybe disappeared way down the page before you'd seen it - I think I posted it whilst you were away. )  :-[

It has me totally baffled too Pamela, it's beautifully made and finished. It stopped me in my tracks when I spotted it for sale. But I can't find it anywhere yet - there must be a LOT of catalogues out there somewhere we've not discovered methinks as my mystery pile is getting bigger by the day!  :cry: Still it gives me something to do huh?   :24:

Hi Anne -

Is it me, or does it look like it goes from a Blue to a light Purple color?  Might it be the glass that changes color in different light.  I forget the word (neodymiium) or something like that....lol :spls:

Your pics seem to show 2 different colors there -- but then I do need New glasses here  ;D

Maybe if it is, that will help the direction to look -- or at least when googling.

Added:  Could it, or might it be a Sugar Bowl (lidded) as I have seen sugar bowls without handles too.  So just wondering IF that could be a possibility too..................if not, I can go bury My head  :spls: ;)

Nope, it's blue all the way through Rose. The colour is closest to the pic at the top of the topic. The later pics are suffering from the light in use when they were taken, but they show the shape and pattern better. It's a gorgeous strong bright blue throughout.

I added something while you were typing.  Is that Possible??

Ok, but I just thought when the light source was different, those type of glass thing DO change color.  Have you tried photos again in different light sources at all -- just to reconfirm this.  Worth a try (maybe) as maybe was not your Camera, as sometimes the camera sees more than the eye......

Sugar bowl is entirely possible too Rose.  :thup:  Size-wise it's the same as many of the powder bowls I have, and the person I bought it from thought she remembered it being the last bit remaining from a set, but who knows?  :usd:

I've tried it under different lights too yep, and no change at all except in these pics which is more to do with the light used being reflected off a nearby pink pottery vase lamp cos I didn't have anywhere safe to move that to when doing the pics. :sun:

  yeah, who knows.  We all know about marriages in glass, or the seller (if an unknown seller) who might have said any story for it, or she/he could have just been wrong from wherever she got her story from.  Lol.  Just wondering if it could be a sugar bowl, that is all, as I had seen some that look that way with no handles (??)

You know me, I always am looking for what I do Not see......................Must be my *Scorpio* Investigative Nature (Birth Sign)

been trying to look around here, not sure what that pattern *might* be called.  I was thinking ( :thud: ) it might be something like *Coin and Star* pattern....

....not even sure IF such a pattern exist  (http://www.debook.com/gifs/Maildunno.gif)
