    Sucha a long time having spare one to publish on CW. Now, with quarantine I found some and want to share the shwartzlot pieces I have. The three were bought at different places and in a long period of time. The first one was my fourth post,
    I had learn a bit more about this type of glass depicting silhouettes and find that the design probably based on a silhouette by Fidus (actually Hugo Höppener 1868-1948) or Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach (1851-1913). In fact the girl that is carried by the three little children is part of Fidus Frühlingslust (Spring joy, from his serie about the four seasons ) 1896, the rest of the characters are very similar to some of “Per aspera ad astra” the complete frieze can be seen here The life of Diefembach and Hopper are very interesting to read. We boutgh this bowl for U$ 25 a year ago at La Gumersinda in La Cumbre, Córdoba. There are other examples on Collectors one of Warren Galle is very similar, the blank has the same shape and characteristics, perhaps similar dimensions and also the characters are a recreation of “Per aspera ad astra”.
    Thanks for looking and any comment is welcome.
