Description
This is a classic piece of mid 20th century design from the Whitefriars glass factory. As is usual with Whitefriars glass there are no makers mark etched in the glass - there would of been a paper label attached at the time of manufacture, but inevitably these get worn away over time. The bowl is also known as the 'molar' pattern on account of it looking similar to a tooth. The bowl is manufactured in a ruby red glass that has then been cased in a clear outer layer - within the red glass are small controlled bubble patterns. As can be observed from above the bowl has 4 distinct lobes, much the same a molar tooth. To the base there is the usual polished pontil mark. According to the published Whitefriars catalogues this is pattern number 9409, designed in 1957 by Geoffrey Baxter. The bowls weight is substantial considering the size weighing in at over 1.3kg even without packaging - if you live outside the U.K please consider the shipping costs before making a purchase.
