    I acquired this opalescent bowl recently and have been attempting to identify the maker and pattern. The piece has three large molded fish on the exterior, all of which are different. Two of the fish are pictured in the attached photos. As seen in the last photo, the collar base has a molded greek key design and there is no makers mark present. The bowl stands 3.75" tall and measures just under 8.5" across the mouth. The collar base is 4" in diameter.

    Thanks in advance!

      ??? Verlys ???

      Could it be Fenton *Verlys* Fish Bowl??

      looks like the Fenton Atlantis pattern

      Thank you, antiquerose and TallCakes! It appears this is a Ted Mehrer Verlys of America "Round Fish Bowl" mold struck by Fenton or Holophane - most likely Holophane as it is in french opalescent. I really appreciate your feedback!
