Notes:  This rose bowl is attributed to Thomas Webb and Sons.  The base of the rose bowl has an applied clear glass berry attached over the puntil scare.  This indicative of T. Webb’s work.    Rose bowls of this similar shape have previously attributed by British author Cyril Manley to T. Webb.  However, John Walsh Walsh made Fair Lamps with this same design bowl for his Fair Lamps.  Was one a copy of the other?  We don’t know.  There exists the possibility that this rose bowl may have been made by John Walsh Walsh.

Glass Type:  Cranberry base glass bowl with clear appliqué case glass leaves and amber attached feet also in the shape of leaves.
