Paneled Diamond & Fan
Attention! Within the Marie - Trademark of Australia - minus Tasmania.
PANELED DIAMOND and FAN: This 9 ¾” wide x 2” high bowl at one time, numbered two, but one has since been smashed; leaving us with the only one known.
It was made in Flint Glass, circa 1930 by Crown Crystal Glass Company of Sydney, New South Wales. The pattern was produced in two shapes; rectangular and circular. There were three sizes in each shape. Only the two largest sizes in the circular shape carry the trademark of Australia less Tasmania. Both shapes were sold as sets and as mentioned, two of the large bowls turned up in marigold and we are the owners of this remaining significant piece. (Stated by John & Margaret McGrath)
Kingfisher Jardiniere Exterior is plain with no design within the marie.
KINGFISHER: 8” wide x 4” high is the measurement of this interesting Jardiniere shape bowl in black amethyst. It is a one-of-a-kind.
KOOKABURRA from the Float Bowl.
BROKEN CHAIN Exterior of Kookaburra.
KOOKABURRA: (Not to be confused with Master bowl). This black amethyst example is from the float bowl and has the Broken Chain exterior. It is 12” wide x 3 ½” high. There are two known. The Broken Chain design on the exterior is a nice addition.
McGraths explain that the 11” ruffled bullet edged bowl in this pattern is a whimsey from the bullet edged Float bowl. So far as they know, only two examples exist. They own one and Phil Hessenius (at least at one time) owned the other one.
SHRIKE Bowl - 9 in. long, x 8 in. wide, x 4 in. high.
SHRIKE Exterior-Fern and Wattle.
SHRIKE Whimsied Rectangular shaped Bowl in Black Amethyst.
SHRIKE: This rectangular shaped (whimsied) Piping Shrike Master bowl in black amethyst is a one-of-a-kind. It is 8” wide x 4” high. The Fern and Wattle exterior pattern compliments quite nicely.
BIG BUCK - 9.5 in. diam. in Black Amethyst.
KANGAROO (Big Buck): Seems that this term is used by some Australians when discussing the large Kangaroo. The smaller “Roo” is the “Doe Roo”, which has the log below the Roo in the pattern.
A prized EMU Compote in Marigold.
Round-ruffled edge EMU Compote.
There is also a compote having octagonal edge.
EMU Compote: The bird is in a bushland setting, found in (dark), black amethyst and marigold. Both the example with round, ruffled edge and the example having a raised octagonal edge exhibit the same pattern. This is a prized collector’s item.
Dean & Diane Fry 6/10
The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them your servant is warned, and in keeping them there is great reward.
Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins;
Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
Sound Bible study involves answering three key questions about a scriptural text.
What does it say? (observation)
What does it mean? (interpretation)
How does it apply to me? (application)
First, we should prayerfully ask: “What does the text say and mean in the context in which it was written.”
In doing so, we can preserve the intended meaning of the inspired text.
