The dinosaurs (as they are called), are actually peacocks (which you can see from the documentation that I will direct you to). This extremely rare piece of glass is in excellent, as it left the factory condition. If you collect antique Bohemian glass, then it is a Must Have example for your collection, and you know that no body else will have one (except for 3 people).If you collect antique glass at all like Loetz or Tiffany or Quezal or Durand or Mt Washington or Northwood , Imperial , Fenton , Fostoria , Millersburg , Westmoreland , US Glass , then this may well be the rarest piece that you can add to your collection. Let me say a little bit about my pictures and about websites for documentation. What you see in my pictures is what you will get. My pictures were taken under my kitchen lights (overhead LED's) with NO FLASH used on the camera. I say this because of the Great iridescence on this particular piece, which is MUCH NICER than other examples of this piece that have been discovered. As you know, with any iridescent glass or carnival glass that is 100+ years old, over time, the more it is cleaned and washed and scrubbed, the more if it in direct sunlight, the more it is handled, the more the iridescence fades or wears off the surface where it was applied. I have contacted several experts concerning this piece who's websites you can find and I have also communicated with the world famous Passau Glass Museum in Germany, who have the Largest collection of antique Bohemian Glass on the planet.
OK, if you Google " Rindskopf Dinosaur Bowl " , the very top website will be from carnivalglassshowcase , GO TO THAT WEBSITE where you can read about the 3rd example that was found and see pictures of it for comparison. At this website you will also see information and research by Dr. Alfredo Villanueva, the highly respected, world known expert IN ALL THINGS Bohemian glass. Villanueva (as ALL collectors of antique Bohemian glass know) was the author at the original Loetz - Rindskopf - Kralik - Bohemian Glass website and also has his own greatly informative website, both of which can be found through Google.
To tell the truth and give proper credit, Alfredo Villanueva and a small handful of others, through their work, their unending research and their websites are primarily responsible for educating the world on antique Bohemian glass. We think after consultation that this may also be factory, which would tell us that AT LEAST 9 examples of these brides bowls were made by Rindskopf. No one knows FOR POSITIVE how many were actually produced (but they would not have hand numbered a high production run), the only thing we CAN know is how many have been discovered.THIS WILL NO DOUBT BE THE PRIDE OF YOUR COLLECTION. I would LOVE to have this Rare Rindskopf brides bowl be bought by a museum to display or a collector that will put it on their website so that many others can see and appreciate it, but in the end I just want it to go to a collector who will cherish it and preserve it well for the future. I have already contacted, emailed pictures to and have offers from a few collectors, so I know what the price range is that it SHOULD sell for.
