    This pretty Bohemian art glass bowl is blown of cased glass with a glossy finish. Interior of the bowl begins at the crimped rim a beautiful shade of pink spreading to a pale (vaseline) yellow/green colour throughout the rest of the bowl. The exterior glass colour is opaque white. Ground pontil on the low footed base. Attributed to Kralik, Harrach or another Bohemian glasshouse. The bowl is 10" diameter, 2-5/8" tall, and the low footed base is 2-5/8" diameter.

    The third and fourth photos are of two Butler Brother wholesale advertisements from 1905 and 1900. It would appear the third photo with the 1905 BB advertisement is a perfect match with the example from the first photo. The bowl shape from the 1900 Butler Bros. advertisement in the fourth photo appears slightly different with the shape of the bowl, but the crimped design pattern is the same as the 1905 Butler Bros. advertisement.

    The rim design of this particular crimped pattern was used for at least for 20 years or more in Bohemian art glass. It can be rather difficult to understand certain styles of production in Bohemian glass without having some kind of proof. In another CW posting, there's a three piece Bohemian art glass epergne with the same crimped rim design pattern and it has a Kralik semi-circle, Czechoslovakia stamp to confirm how this crimped rim design was still being used in 1918 or after. Here is the epergne link to compare the crimped rim design:
