Bohemian? Finger Bowl & Underplate?
« on: June 19, 2008, 05:24:29 PM »
Finally getting around to posting this. Is this probably a Bohemian finger bowl 7 underplate? Bowl is 4 1/2 D by 3" H & plate is 6" D. Heavily decorated, shading green to clear, glow until a blacklight. Thanks, Ken

Pamela thanks, but I forgot to add that both the bowl & plate are blown with polished pontils.  I'm not certain its ours though....we were not all that involved with this type of decorating with the exception of Mt. Washington & few others & even they didn't get quite this involved. Ken.

Looks like Moser to me.

Ken, please excuse, lacking knowledge - the whole pattern is enamelled then? would join redheat in that case - still: what a beauty, also, if not pressed glass  :-X :)

Yes Pamela the entire set is decorated, hardly a spot isn't covered & its intact. It shades green to clear & its hand blown, no mold used here. I say Bohemian instead of Moser because there is no signature so who knows who produced it? I think its a finger bowl & plate, but was looking for confirmation. Ken
