    I bought this bowl in 1973 with a friend here in Sydney. We were both students at university and could not afford the $120 on our own. In those days I was earning $40 a week. We shared the bowl and I was given it by his partner when Tony died. It obviously has lots of memories for me.
    It has the R. Lalique mark and No 3224. and is a combo of clear, frosted and sepia-stained glass. I believe it to be from the very early 1920's.

      I really want to get into glass and pottery, but so much of it is from Costco, cheapo Made in China junk, or by someone who took a weekend pottery/glassblowing class. Vertraio, can you recommend any good resources to learn about what to look for in art glass and art pottery?
    13. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      Go and hunt round some of the antique fairs, antique stores and markets and find out what is available. There are some books available on-line on glass that will show you what is really good. Collector's Weekly has some great information embedded within the postings snd that's for free. General books are great too to get started and you don't need to buy new copies. I regret not having bought books years ago. Some books I just gave away because they were no longer of any use but they are all part of the learning curve. I'd ask this same question to the people here on CW who have items that interest you. But I also use the internet. Victor Arwas did some great books on glass. Mark Hill is writing some good books on modern glass; check out his blog. Check out loetz.com, the Section there on publications give some great books. I also use my local libraries for rarer books. Her's Some other good informational sites:

      great story! I am curious how sharing a bowl worked? you got it one month and he got it the next?
    20. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      At the time I lived upstairs and Tony lived on the ground floor in the Rocks area. I left Sydney and the bowl behind for many years. I was glad to see them when I returned. It remained with him for the next twenty years. When he died I was given the bowl.
