Thought this orange and black glass pedestal bowl was really nice. It does not appear to be hand made because you can see a clear seam in both sides of the black base. The top is more red but the outside turns orange as it gets closer to the bottom at the base. There is a fluted rib pattern in the bowl that's kind of hard to see in the pictures. No marks or lables to ID it. I'll leave that to the glass experts out there. -Mike-

    Hi Mike, don't think it's old tango Czech.
    It's more about what isn't there, such as a pontil or cut rim - necessary then when using a mold with hot furnace glass.
    The graduation of color does not sound right.
    The fluting does not sound right.
    Seems it maybe an American pressed glass console bowl from the same period, 1930s, inspired by Czech glass. A few thoughts for you - but don't take them to the bank. Sorry. ;-)

    Hi Lisa.....Thanks for the info, It's probably an L. E. Smith piece or similar company. Back when I posted this I was not so clued in. Your post reminded me I still had this piece so I thought I'd ask. It's under the bed with several other boxes. Out of sight out of I tend to pack away my suspected better pieces so they won't get damaged until I have a proper way to display them. After two years I'm curious again about the maker. Maybe some new info has emerged online. Thanks so much for the help. -Mike- :)

    Wish I could help more Mike. That eureka moment when you finally find out, it's just great. I have a couple books about American glass production, but from later in the 20th century.
    Your under the bed storage brought a smile, that is another one of my hidden areas too. I find things online often while I am looking for something else. You never know. Best, lisa
