EXCELLENT PRESSING ON THIS PIASA BIRD!

Here is a Blue Opal Piasa Bird Rosebowl….the opening is so small, I, at times, wonder if it was meant to be a Hair Receiver.  Someone will have to find a manufacture catalog or ad before we know.  This sits on 3 Ball & Claw feet.  The Opal is nice and even+- about half way down.  This is a heavy piece of glass.  And, the blue is a Shapphire … darker than most EAPG Blue.

Older references go from English to US etc…back & forth.  Mike Carwile found this pattern in a book by Cyril Manley, “Decorative Victorian Glass”, just not in Opal.  So, definitely English.

Circa early 1900’s exact unknown.
