This silver overlay on this piece is in perfect condition. I haven’t been able to identify it, but it obviously has a daffodil theme going on.

I was scrolling through the Gallery of the Elegant and Everyday Glass Forum looking to ID an etch I am going to post soon when I came across a very similar bowl (different etch). I was so pleased to see that my bowl is older than I thought – mid 1920s-1945. Very exciting to be able to identify a piece. I actually never thought I would.

I bought this little bowl sometime ago. It was 75 cents. I have to admit that I have it displayed in a dark corner of the basement. I’ve ignored it, in fact I hadn’t washed it in ages and was surprised when I did – I thought it had a yellowish tinge. Turns out it was dust!
When I REALLY looked at this piece I saw that it actually has some intriguing features. The feet and the banding (for the lack of a better word) make it very interesting.
The etch is pretty, although not spectacular, but the shape is very interesting. No idea which company made it.
I guess I should move it out of the basement.
