Crowned VR with the badge of the City of London and the Flowers of the Union, it is one of 12 made for the top table. Two are in institutions: the V&A and the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
This bowl is being offered by Mark West at Battersea’s Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair running from May 9-14, priced at £2500. West believes this bowl is the earliest example of uranium glass (invented in Bohemia in 1835) made in the UK.
Topolski's guests arrive
Panter & Hall Decorative will bring a group of Feliks Topolski (1907-89) paintings to Battersea from May 9-14. Topolski came to England in 1935 to record George V’s silver jubilee for a Polish magazine. Among the pictures on show is this Royal Guests Arriving, priced at £2850.
