    A Rainbow Crackle Gilded Rose Bowl . Ground pontil.
    So many colours in the rainbow pattern :so unusual.
    Found in an op shop at the back of a shelf in the dark.
    Have shown it to a few FB groups but it still remains a mystery.
    The edges of the crackled surface are quite sharp to the touch.
    It had been used as a pen holder by a former owner.
    The gold foil over the crackled surface has been stretched by the process.

    The suspects are Stevens & Williams and Harrach too.
    The names of d’Humy and Vasa Murrhina Glass Co., came up too but are discounted.
    Glass is a learning curve.

    Perhaps someone else here might suggest another ???
    H : 8.5 cm or 3.4”
    W : 10 cm or 4”

      Gorgeous pastel rainbow glass, great find
    2. IronLace IronLace, 1 year ago
      All I can say is that it is MAGICAL & that I absolutely adore it! Wish I'd found it in whatever lucky op shop that you did... :-)
      Okay, as someone with a fair bit of rainbow glass in my collection, I'm going to hazard an English attribution on this, based on a few factors (although the gold foil crackle throws me somewhat - most unusual).
      The variation in the size of the coloured stripes, with the blue being the thinnest one. I have some items with this same aspect, despite other differences in decor. Most notably a pair of rainbow swirl vases (clear not cased) purchased from the UK & attributed to S & W.

      Also, a salt with the same thin blue stripe, overlaid with white trailed decoration.

      May I also add, that if you are ever able to part with it, that I could provide it with a loving new home...

      Many thanks FORTAPACHE, KWQD, NEWFLD, LARKSEL, ARTFOOT, SUMMERBLUES & IRONLACE !!!

      Thanks especially to IRONLACE & NEWFLD for their kind comments. It was a Salvo’s on the north shore earlier in the year I think. The same colours I’ve seen on pieces that are said to be English. It’s not my area. I appreciate your opinion immensely.

      RENEDIJKSTRA, I am happy with either S&W or Harrach. It’s the craquelure which is intriguing. I just love it. I’m developing a taste for rainbow glass too.
