An unusual Debra pattern Cane Bottom Two Handled Green Depression Glass Bowl by Lancaster Glass of Ohio! This beautiful and scarce molded pattern is similar to Lancaster’s Landrum but has distinctive differences. The central motif is an urn filled with a fan of fronds reminiscent of a headdress. Wide, sweeping scrolls flank the urn and extend upward to an inverted and larger similar fanned design beneath each applied open handle. This design reminds me of the hollyhock dolls I used to make with my grandmother. The scrolls are connected on each side by a wide and angled band resembling a step. Garlands of detailed five-petaled flowers and leaves arch above the urn on each side of the bowl and beneath the scrolls under the handles. The shape of the bowl is characteristic of Lancaster glass with its cane bottom and six scallops and points around the rim. The lovely green does glow under black light.
This pretty bowl is 7-1/2 inches in diameter, 8-3/4 inches across the open handles, and about 3-inches deep. The caned bottom is 3-3/4 inches in diameter.
Made by Lancaster circa the late 1920s - early 1930s, there is no mark. There is very little information available about this pattern, and it seems to have been produced only in this size bowl and a smaller bowl.
The bowl will need cleaning as specks of residue tend to get into the little nooks and crannies of the design over the years. These show up much more clearly in the photos than when seen with the naked eye! Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, there is no damage.
