Green bowl, not so humble

Post by TomNo.7 on April 22nd 2013, 11:59 pm

Hallo!
First off, can somebody tell me what the (nominal) function of this bowl type beauty is? Does the style have a name?


It's about 11" / 28cm in length and 4" / 10cm at its widest




The base has 'flea bites' around the edge.




Again, any ideas on origin / maker, age and value would be well appreciated.

Possibly Anchor Hocking, 'Stars & Bars' or 'Thousand Line' pattern. c.1940s-60s.
Probably a fruit bowl.
As for value, under a tenner - they're quite common in the charity shops.

I agree. I've got a few myself. Have you tried it under a UV light?

Thanks!

No not looked under UV light. Just looked this up and the results said "uranium glass". Do you think the colouring could be uranium?
