I have six small bowls / sherbets like this. I got them in an antique store many years ago. The lady who worked there said they were from the 1930s. I have been collecting many vintage and antique things over the years, but now when I finally have some time, I´m trying to identify some of my items that are unmarked :-)

These bowls are beautiful, and the quality is great. They are in great condition. The edges on the top of them seems to be a little sharp on some of them. They are 8.5cm tall.

Does anyone know of their origin?

    Try Ebay, search for terms that are similar... or on Google. I wish I can help more... but enjoy the hunt :) They sure are beautiful.

    You have what is referred to as depression glass from USA. It was given away in stores during the 1930's with so much money paid for groceries you got a piece . There are several patterns and colors . I don't know all the names of patterns but if you search depression glass green you should see yours. The are custards and there should be no sharp edges maybe they have a chip ? There are people who collect depression glass and love it . Hope this helps . The value on it has fallen and green being more common color than pink they would not sell for a lot in todays slow market but are pieces of history and then WPA started up to get people back to work from the big depression and I think history is trying to repeat itself today
    Thanks for sharing them :-)
