    This pretty little glass bowl was another recycling centre find !!
    For 50p I couldn't say no ..
    I think it's Vaseline glass but stood corrected as I'm not up on glass really , its 4"round x nearly 3"high it also has a guilded rim around the top , it's white in colour & has a nice pattern on the base and a different pattern around the top ..
    When held up to natural light it seems to get a yellowy off white glow.
    I think it's a great little bowl/footed dish & hope you like it :-)
    I've just put it under uv light and was expecting it to go green but it goes the same colour as the uv light ???
    thanks to TallCakes for the i-d on this beautiful opal glass bowl,
    made in the USA & the pattern is American Sweetheart pattern, by Macbeth-Evans & known as Monax , 1930s ;-)

      Thanks CindB .. I don't know if it is Vaseline glass as I just put uv light on it & it goes purple / mauve colour I think it has to go green :-)

      Thanks CatherinesCollections for your love & kind comments
      It is a nice piece of glass it looks almost cloudy & you can't see the patterns unless you get the light right :-)

      I really love that design on the bowl! Very nice indeed!
    7. surfdub66 surfdub66, 6 years ago
      Thanks jscott0363 , it is a nice design , its a shame it doesnt stand out more !!
      The pattern on the base can only be seen when flipped over , im wondering if the bottom pattern maybe a glass makers mark ;-)

      Thank you racer4four for your love & kind comments, it is kind of cool looking ;-)

      Is there any sort of mark in tje bottom? Itstrikes me as a northwood opalescent piece. It's gorgeous and i love it.

      Thanks.. sd;-)

      your bowl was made by Macbeth-Evans and this is their 'American Sweetheart' pattern, c1930s. They patented this white opal color in 1917 and called it Monax.

      TallCakes;-) ????
      thank you so much !! I've been looking & looking but nothing !!
      How do these things end up at a tip in the uk after so many years ??
      Many many thanks to you for the i-d; -)

      you're very welcome : ) it is interesting to see how depression era glass makes it's way around the world. Macbeth-Evans used their Monax glass formula in several different patterns for a number of years.
    16. surfdub66 surfdub66, 6 years ago
      Too right CindB , tallcakes is cool !! ;-),
      How can people know so much ????
      Thanks to you both;-))
