Good morning, Floyd,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Could you please provide the link to the Houzz page you reference? I've looked for it and don't see it and would like to consider that in my valuations research.
Many thanks!
Delia

www.Houzz.com It's been a while so i'll search further if this is
unavailable.

Ok, still there, search clear petal crystal bowl. houzz still present the
only offer. Nothing on maker Gilden e.g. production date etc.

I see it now. Seems this is likely to be something that may have been mass-produced and is not a rare, one-off thing. It is not an antique (the standard definition for an antique is that it needs to be 100 years old, or older; it may be a stretch to term this "vintage."
Houzz is a retail website; the values Mearto provides are "fair market" values, for auction purposes. The standard valuation formula from retail to "fair market" is the retail is 3 times a low estimate and 2 times a high estimate. Houzz is asking $1,385 (for ease, let's just round that to $1,400), so a fair-market value for your bowl would be $500-700, and it would be catalogued as follows:
An optic crystalline clear petal bowl
Made by Gilded Home, 20th Century
9 by 6 by 1 inches
$500-700*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
