    My family gave me this bowl a couple of years ago as a present, and for obvious reasons I think it's great.
    The awesome orange glass, cased in clear, is so wonderfully moulded. The pattern on the narrow part of the body is like scales, and they open up as the body widens.
    It's beautifully made and finished.

    I doubt it's Japanese, and have yet to find where it was made. I have asked around and others have it in grey, and clear, but don't know from whence it came.

    I have thought maybe American and that's an area of glass I know very little about! Any ideas all?

      Gorgeous orange!! Such a nice gift to receive. Love the bird too! :)

      Amazing bold orange color, and the bowl has a wonderful design as if encased in ice - lovely gift from your family! Is that your pet cockatoo I hope, a beauty :)

      Looks bit like Whitefriars.
    5. IronLace IronLace, 2 months ago
      Yes, I thought Whitefriars too, the style reminds Geoffrey Baxter's 60s designs. But this is not really my area either!

      Thanks Scott, orange is yummy.
      It's not my sulphur crested cockatoo, but we have these visiting us daily. Currently they are successfully defeating my attempts to stop them pulling the rubber strips out of my flyscreens and front window. Awesome birds, but too smart and they constantly behave like a terrible two year old child.

      racer4four, Beautiful.

      I've been eying this on and off since you posted it. I've used all kinds of search criteria, plus trying to hold my mouth right, but no joy so far.

      I agree with those who say it has a Scandinavian vibe. I'd go further to say it has an Iittala Ultima Thule vibe, but obviously it isn't that.

      The popularity of Scandinavian glass has led to a lot of imitators, but that doesn't necessarily make them all cheap knock-offs.

      Whoever made your bowl made a knock-out. :-)

      Sean I have had a look at Viking but can't find this shape. Thanks for the direction!

      Lol Keramikos, the mouth should have done it!
      It is a fab piece and great quality, and yes, a Scandi vibe to it. Thanks for trying to find the origin of it, I am really keen to know.
      It was bought here in Australia, and on a glass FB page two others said they had it in grey, and clear, both in the States. The grey and clear sounds more Scandi than American to me but I haven't found it yet!
      I've tried most Scandi brands and some German as well, no good.
      Ah well, I'll just enjoy it and one day I will find out. That's often the glass way, no?

      your welcome Karen, im thinking American because ive seen bottoms like that before. or it could be morgan town glass ?
    19. racer4four racer4four, 29 days ago
      Thanks Sean, American glass is where I am still looking. Checking Morgan Town now.
