This bowl is 10" across and 6.25" high. I went for a walk today thinking I wouldn't get in too much trouble and bought four pieces of glass that probably weighed about 20 lbs total and had to lug it home about a mile uphill. Sigh. This feels like Viking to me, but I just can't find an image of anything like it and can only gaze longingly at my Dean Six book on Viking glass. The bottom is ground around the rim. I don't think that I have seen a base like this on a Viking piece before, but this is the only piece like this that I have seen. It has several large straw marks. It has been at a local thrift shop for about a year coming down from $39 to $29 and I made a $20 offer and got it. There is a bit of clear/opalescent glass around the rim of the bowl, which also makes me think it is Viking. I am open to opinions,though... I haven't weighed it, but guess it is in the 4-6 pound range. The first image is the true color. I had to light it up to get some details. The light shining through the bowl makes some nice patterns on the table top. Guessing it is at least American art glass.
