About Kookaburra

Made by Crown Crystal of Australia, these large and small bowls are found in dark (amethyst) and marigold carnival glass. The large bowls are typically 9 to 10 inches across. The small bowls (nappy) are about 5 to 6 inches across. Both size bowls have 12 ruffles, a back pattern of Fern and Wattle and a plain ground base. Even larger “Float Bowls” exist in this pattern, the mold for them is entirely different. On these low, turned-up bowls that measure 10 1/2 to 11″ the bird is in a stippled circle, and a plain band with 5 evenly placed Waratah flowers goes up to the beaded edge. The back pattern on these is either Broken Chain or plain back.
