is it possible to date this tortoiseshell bowl?
1970s but are there models which can be identified by year if looking at the form?

The flame pontil mark dates it 1974-79, while the label dates it to late 1970s, so probably 1978-79, although I have seen bowls with that shape (but different colour) listed as mid 70s, so on shape alone, no, I don't think you can narrow down the date.

The shape is sometimes called Elephant foot (slight bulge towards base), quite subtle and very nice. Aurene can be found in this shape but I can not remember seeing any other colours.

One addition re dating, Tortoiseshell was made until 1982 and these later items would still have had a flame mark applied even though the flame mark was not used on other ranges. Would agree with late(ish) seventies for this one though.

In the past I wondered if you could attempt to date Tortoiseshell from the variation in the colours used, some times the browns are darker and the yellows creamier. I gave up on that notion...
