No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Snow globe base?
Oh yes, thank you that helps enormously as I can see the how the powder pot differs from mine. I'll add a pic of mine here so you can see what I mean... on the lid each panel is smooth down to the rim and there is no ridge between the panels
Glass / Re: Pressed glass bowl - Breton dancers. ID please.

We still don't know much about them though, so every instance adds to what we know, and pinning these Breton dancer bowls down to them is a big plus, thank you.  I only  remembered them as I posted in one of the earlier topics, a set of small transfer decorated tot glasses marked BVB that I'd picked up as props for a play.
I don't know if this helps or makes anything any clearer.   A couple of pictures of the part set I have in frosted Uranium green with a candlestick.  I bought what is shown plus another small lidded bowl, all sold together as a set.

can't promise, but I'll try to include this No. when I visit Kew next week  -  at least we might see the name of the manufacturer.

 :) Thank-you for taking the time and effort to join to answer this query.
It's very kind of you indeed.
I'm sure the OP will see it.
Are you interested in glass yourself?
Do, please hang around and join in the chatter.  ;D
Thank you Anne! :-*

Pierre, your vase is lovely, I have never seen this particular model before apart from the drawings in the catalogue.
Reich made a whole range of cameo glass pieces in the 1930s.

Here are some more links to pressglas-korrespondenz, where you can see several vases similar to yours:

It is so easy to damage lampwork, I am surprised many survive so perfectly. Still some great quality work there, thx for posting.
