    As far as I know the maker of this Décor has never been identified. However it sits well with my Art Deco stuff and I like it.

    As you see the décor goes over the knob of the lid. What is more you can see (image three) that the knob is hollow and probably has the same layers as the lid and the bowl. I have only one other lid with a knob formed like this! The spatter is mostly of medium sized blobs except for areas that look like pointillism! Then of course it has a black web as well.....

      Silly question ... Why are these type of pieces predominately orange ?
    2. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Sorry ... Just looked at other show and tell posts with a variety of base colors ... I guess the orange just seems to be catching my attention ...
    3. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Don't say sorry, say what you like.....within reason! I think orange was the colour of the epoch....or at least vivid child's paintbox colours. Think Clarice Cliffe for instance.
    4. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Correction.....Clarice Cliff
    5. mikelv85 mikelv85, 6 years ago
      I've noticed the predominance of orange in these pieces too. They do make for great seasonal decor, especially filled with Halloween candy. :)
    6. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Nice idea, mikelv85! Orange must have been the most popular colour as now, close on a century later, it's the most commonly found of the Tango colours.
    7. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      A good question!Colours of 1920-1930 were imperial blue,gold,carnelian,silver and apricot brandy in contrary to previous light and delicate colours of Art Nouveau.
      Your box,Peggy is a pretty sample of carnelian,I think.
    8. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Ahhh ... The origins of artistic inspiration are fascinating for sure ...
    9. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Thank you, Ivonne. Chambers Dictionary gives carnelian/cornelian as 'translucent red'. The interior is certainly verging on a red.
    10. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      So, Lisa, as this box has black accents it is true Tango Glass....peoples definition of Tango vary greatly.
      It seems the origins of the name 'Tango Glass' has been helpful for eye4beauty, thank you.
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      There, eye4beauty .....always worth asking the question :-)
    12. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Hi, Lisa, my reply was hurried, that's all.....Peggy
    13. SEAN68 SEAN68, 6 years ago
      great colors!!!!
    14. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Yes SEAN, dazzling!
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Thanks for the loves, mikelv, Moonstonelover, rucklczglass, Ivonne, Alan, Radegunder, SEAN, cornhusker and Efesgirl.
    16. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      I think art is meant to provoke ... If someone can paint a dog that makes me think of a bird ... genius ...
    17. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Eye, I can only paint a dog that looks like a bird.....
    18. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Lol ... Thanks for this post ... 100 year old piece of glass ... Will the maker please stand up and state your name ?

      Karen ... Perfect ...
    21. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Not sure why I am commenting here ... This got my attention for some reason ...
    22. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Le mot juste, Karen :-)
    23. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Thank you for the loves, vetraio, racer, VioletOrange and Michelle.

      Love the FALL/Autumn colors -- Stunning
    25. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Thank you so much for the love and the comment, antiquerose :-)

      a very alegre box, perhaps a gay box? it does not sound me in English
    27. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Thank you, kivatinitz, perhaps you mean 'allegro' as in music, meaning lively or bright? It is certainly bright in the 'colourful' sense. I do have a second language so I completely understand the frustration of not being able to say exactly what you feel. However it does not happen to you very often :-)
    28. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Thank you for the loves, antiquerose, Elisabethan, smiata, kivatinitz, EZa, Manikin, Justanovice, IanBrighton and Rick.
