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 ???
