    Hello again. This nice little crimped rose bowl has the most unusual pattern. It's 3 feet (or "toes") have a well done tree trunk pattern...complete with "knot holes". As the feet meet the bowl it is a fire motif. I'm hoping it can be seen in these photos. This rose bowl reacts very well to UV. Any thoughts as to maker/pattern....anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again :)

      try researching Beaumont/Viking Art Glass 'Tree Bark'; some also list as Tree Trunk. or bark feet

      Thank you Sir TallCakes....I seem to have this bad habit of overlooking Viking Glass as a possibility during my research.

      I have now learned much of the history Thanks to Sir (Master?) TallCakes about this "Tree Bark Flowerlite" Very interesting...http://vikingartglass.com/article-pf.php?article_id=16
      I cannot seem to find a Viking version with the crimping, as most of theirs were made to hold the multi-hole plastic caps. Sorry I left out this important fact from the original post but it also has a very nice cold shear mark on the inside bottom. So maybe EAPG early 1900s?

      Beaumont Company should not be confused with the Beaumont Glass Company, The former came after the EAPG era. Here is an article on Beaumonmt Company history: https://chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=5929
      this site has several examples of the Beauont candy from which this crimped whimsy rose bowl was made. You might post to their forum to see if they have other ideas.

      found this quote in their forum: "The way to tell the difference between the Beaumont feet and the Viking feet is to look or feel the foot. If the mold seams are readily visible it is Beaumont, if not, it is Viking. I may be way off but I thought that the Silver City decoration heyday was way after Beaumont closed so I just automatically call those Viking"
