Maybe "goofus" glass? But most goofus glass that I've seen have other colors painted on.

I thought at first the bowl looked like gold mercury glass but the pitcher does not look like it unless it is in terrific shape. I have a couple of gold mercury glass vases and they look similar.

They are all the same. It has 5 glasses and 5 cups or tea cups that go with it too, all the same brushed gold color. The pitcher is the same color as the bowl, i think the lighting was a bit different. I have no idea how old it is but it is at least 80 or more years. It was my grandmothers Aunt. So it could be turn of the century.

Does it have any markings on it? On Antique Roadshow, they showed some Tiffany that looked like that that was called "Favrile glass".
