This French Art Deco signed opalescent glass bowl was produced by the Parisian firm of La Societe Anonyme Edmond Etling which was founded after WWI in Paris, France and made at the Choisy-le-Roi glassworks which were located just outside of Paris.  The beautifully molded 1” thick glass pattern of geraniums is on the base of the bowl and the petal clusters serve as the feet of the bowl, leaving the inside of the bowl with a smooth surface.  Etling produced the work of some of the top designers of the Art Deco era.  Geza Hiecz and Georges Beal were some of the Etling designers as well as Lucille Sevin, Genevieve Granger, Maurice Guiraud and Demetre Chiparus.  The company did not survive WWII so all its production was in the 1920’s and 1930’s.  The bowl is marked “Etling France 146” in the mold.  The  “146” pertains to the catalog number assigned to it by Etling.   The diameter of the bowl is 11 ¾” and it’s 2 ¾” tall.
