CROWN CRYSTAL - Part 11
AUSTRALIAN HOLLY. Interior design -
#2622 in Ken Arnold Book - 7.5 in. 3 toed.
AUSTRALIAN HOLLY: A rare pattern made in thick glass; a characteristic of Australian pieces. Please note that there are differences in leaves and berries on each sprig. Found only in marigold with an exterior pattern called Panels and Diamonds, this 7 ½ footed bowl is certainly one of the loveliest from Crown Crystal Glass Co.
The Panels and Diamonds was commonly made in flint glass and has been seen in dark carnival having no interior pattern.
Plain Interior of 6 inch BROKEN CHAIN footed bowl.
BROKEN CHAIN - 6 inch - Marigold.
BROKEN CHAIN exterior of 11.75 in. bowls.
BROKEN CHAIN Salver.
Left: - BROKEN CHAIN Compote - Interior is plain.
Right: - BROKEN CHAIN Compote - Exterior displays the design.
BROKEN CHAIN: According to Carnival Glass of Australia, the 11 ¾ collar base bowls are rarely seen. They are heavy bowls with a plain interior, lines and large Broken Chain pattern decorating the outside of the bowl.
Three drawings of a compote/salver illustrating the Broken Chain design on the under-side, appear in this same book. Two drawings offer variations in the edge ruffling, with the third, displaying a smooth straight edge, slightly turned upward. Notes indicate there is some variation in the stems and the sizes as a result of hand finishing. It is not uncommon to find marigold comports with clear glass bases and stems and some show aqua coloring.
DIAMOND Sugar Basin - found in dark glass as well.
Seen on page 67 - Crown Crystal of Australia.
DIAMOND Sugar Basin: Approx. 9cm in height, this item is the only shape shown in the Carnival Glass of Australia book. Found in dark and marigold carnival.
DIAMOND CUT 9.5 in. Bowl. Pg. 31 - Crown Crystal Book.
DIAMOND CUT: Known in 9 ½ and 5 bowls having sloping sides, as well as in the Rose Bowl shape. The design is shown in Crown Crystal Catalogue as No. 1429, a 9 rose bowl. However, an elongated shape having collar base is not listed in the circa 1988 Crown Crystal Book. This shape does have a 26 large and 26 small pointed star in the base, as do the Crown Crystal shapes, but with those styles available only in marigold and dark (amethyst) base glass, we asked Margaret Dickinson for some clarifying research into possibilities.
This blue bowl is shown on page 181, Standard Companion to Non American Carnival Glass, Edwards/Carwile-Inwald - (Czechoslovakia, 1920s). Since American manufacturers borrowed designs from other producers, it should come as no surprise to learn that the practice was carried out in Europe as well.
WATERLILY and BULLRUSHES Float Bowl.
BROKEN CHAIN Exterior of WATER LILY and BULLRUSHES Float Bowl.
BIRDSEYE VIEW of WATERLILY and BULLRUSHES
WATER LILY and BULLRUSHES: This distinctive pattern uses Waterlilies and Dragonfly, along with Bullrushes, small flowers, pond and Butterfly. The design is on the interior of an 11 Float bowl known in dark and marigold examples. The exterior offers the Broken Chain pattern.
Dean & Diane Fry 9/10
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord and in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. Psalm 1
