It features a frosted uranium green Squirrel figurine built into the flower frog. It is a good quality figurine and the float bowl was made in the Depression era 1920's and 1930's by Sowerby Glass Works in England. Uranium figurine made by Sowerby Glass Works in England.
The figurine is 6.5 inches or 17cm high. The built in flower frog is 4 inches or 10cm in diameter. The Squirrel centrepiece and flower frog is in good condition. The very bottom, where it sits in the bowl has some small nibbles. There are no chips on the Squirrel figurine.
There are some imperfections in the flower frog which is typical for this type of glass making process. The bowl is the rare square shape, 10.5 inches. It stands 4.5 inches or 11.5cm tall so it is fairly deep and the foot is 4.25 inches or 11cm square. The bowl has a scalloped pattern around the edge of the bowl.
There four squirrels in the bowl, on each side and there are trees and leaves in between the Squirrels. The bowl is very good condition. For a float bowl that is nearly 100 years old you can expect a few scuff marks on the foot of the bowl. Hese Squirrel float bowls are getting very scarce, you don't see them anymore.
The bottom of the bowl has "REG N APPLIED FOR". These float bowls are becoming very scarce, especially in the original bowl and I haven't seen a uranium squirrel for a long time. It would be ideal for any collector that likes rare pieces in such condition, usually they have chips in the ears or have a lot of damage, but this one is in good condition.
Have a look at all the photos to see the lovely colour and condition. I know what it is like to get broken items and feel bitterly disappointed when they are not wrapped properly. I will double box this lovely Squirrel Float Bowl to protect it, and make sure you get it in the same beautiful condition it is in now.The item "Frosted Uranium Squirrel in Art Deco Float Bowl Made by Sowerby Glass Works" is in sale since Sunday, December 6, 2020.
