Walther Cloud Glass for March

Glassware similar to cloud glass called “Oralit” was also produced in Germany by Walther & Son around 1930’s. I have only a few pieces of this purple colour. I believe it is called “violet” although it looks more like amethyst to me. I bought most of them from flea markets in Holland (only one piece from Australia).

The cake stand is my prized piece as it is quite rare. I have seen similar piece only once on ebay (mind you, I don’t surf ebay that very often – contrary to Bob’s perception!) and it fetched an obscene price by the end of the auction.
