Alfredo

About 5 " tall and over 10" wide, this bowl has had me stumped for 20+ years. I have seen it advertised as Fenton. But the hollow foot says Bohemian. It has a softly iridized blue/green color, and a thin applied black rim. Also, notice that it is cased.

    I see it now for the first time; applied thin black rim tells us it must have been an important glassmaker – it is extremely difficult to spread evenly black thread around still hot glass on the rod. Not many glassmakers could have done it so perfectly. Much easier on smaller pieces but this is 10`` wide! One can find that it was not easy even for Venini to apply a rim of different color on much narrower pieces.

    I have suspected WMF, but I have discarded it being American.
