My grandmother has used this bowl for quite some time to hold terracotta planters for her flowers. I have no idea when or where she got it. I have tried to research the name on the bottom but with no Success. The name on the bottom is "Oroflamme". All I can find that is even close is Oriflamme. The design of the bowl is similar to what I have seen for Oriflamme but you can clearly see that the name on the bottom of the bowl is not Oriflamme. Any help in figuring out any information on this bowl would be greatly appreciated.

I have images of the bowl in a Photobucket album but I have to wait 7 days to post pics on the site. If anyone would like to see to bowl...send me a PM and I will give you the link to the album. It is a nice looking bowl and I love the colors...I just can not find any information on "Oroflamme".


Thank you in advance.

Well you have to assume that it is Oriflamme , just a different script that's all .

I suspect it's an American copy of the British form - like Irish Belleek and American Lenox Belleek. But they changed the name to avoid patent contraventions .

Thank you all for your opinions. Is there any online sites/reference material that anyone can recommend for me to research. I have tried searching Oroflamme & Oioflamme several different ways but every time I get pointed to Oriflamme. Thank you in advance for any information. It is very much appreciated.
