    Found this at the local goodwill or rather it found me. I was walking across the sales floor when someone bumped me into a table that had several place settings on it and this piece. It's 7" tall and 6 1/2" wide at the widest point. Bottom is polished but there are no marks anywhere. I ave to say, this thing really grabbed me when I first saw it. Does anyone have any idea about maker? Thanks

      It is CHALET/LORRAINE glass from Canada. Called a Cigar Bowl

      Also here is one on Ebay in your shape, and marked:

      Thanks antiquerose. I did some looking around and found some more examples of the Chalet cigar bowls that are nearly identical. The only thing that really sets this one apart is the color...I saw a few light purple pieces but nothing quite this dark.

      Yes Chalet Art Glass did Amethyst colored Glass. Your mystery is Solved

      You can check with Deborah Site here as to colors made. She has did a Chalet Art glass show a few years ago, and has also wrote books on Chalet Art Glass. Here are some other Chalet Art Glass Amethyst items to show you:

      It IS 100 % Chalet Art Glass in Amethyst color.

      Cameras, lighting and background make a difference - as they all reflect the color differently. If you wish, you can probably contact her to confirm it.
