    I purchased this beautiful bowl many years ago, at a small antique shop in Budapest, Hungary. Since than, I am not able to tell, what I have. I just guess, it is Bohemian from around the 1920's, but I would love to be sure about it. It is about 8" long by 5" wide by 4" high. The upper layer is very dark opaque green and is cut back to a clear crystal with a beautifully detailed forest scene. 18 cut panel at the top, 18 cut panel at the bottom. The base of the bowl is flat and polished. Would anyone please help me on this item to identify?

      Very pretty bowl - sorry I don't know anything. I'm visiting Hungary in June. Are there antique markets or areas of special antique interest in Budapest? We're also traveling throughout the country - our first trip! Very excited and any advice on how not to stand out as a tourist is welcome. Thank you.

      I am glad, you decided to visit our country. :) If you want to collect Hungarian antiquities, like Herendi or Zsolnay porcelain, you should come to Budapest and go to Váci street. There are many-many antique shops and you can bargaining with them. Also you will find Bohemian glass, Austro-Hungarian silver and French crystal. But mostly European antiques. They don't know American things at all. :( About Hungary: Hungarian people are MOSTLY courteous and kind, BUT! Be careful with TAXi drivers, city restaurants and night bars. They like cheat foreigners and well overprice their service, drink and food (I am talking about Budapest city and Balaton lake area). Always talk (and ask) average people, they will tell you where to go for good (I mean REAL Hungarian) meal and decent service. Beware of gypsies!!! ;)

      Thank you so much for this advice. I plan to visit Vaci Street! It's okay - I have so many vintage and antique things from here. I want to find a special piece of jewelry. Thank you for advice about restaurants and taxis etc. Yes, we will talk to people and be aware. My boyfriend travels twice a year so he knows how. He's very unusual for an American. I'm thankful to travel w/him - but also to you because he wouldn't care about antiques and I'd like to sneak Vaci Street into our adventure.
