Came home with this beautiful Iridescent purple glass bowl, c. late 19th century attributed to Bakalowits Shone. Bowl measures 4" tall and 7" in diameter. It appears that the silver metal rim may have been added later.
Bakalowits, E. & Söhne
An Austrian glass decorator and retailer particularly well known for their chandeliers.
Founded in Vienna in 1845 Bakalowits himself produced designs for Iridescent glass for the Loetz, Witwe glassworks and persuaded Josef Hoffmann and Ludwig Koloman Moser to do likewise
