Turquoise Geode Bowl
« on: May 09, 2007, 07:39:44 PM »
Hi,

I just wondered if anyone could help me with this one:

Top
Base

I'm not even sure if it is Murano, it's been suggested to me that it may be Scandi.
The base and top rim are polished.

As ever, many thanks for any help.

Could be LSA International, in which case it's highly likely to be Polish. Their stuff is nice quality

No sommerso halo Rob?  If not, then I'm inclined to agree with Christine about LSA.  Only a semi-educated guess though.  ;) :)

Thanks everyone for your comments  ;D
Being a Murano novice I've always found the term 'Sommerso' a difficult one too  :-X. I'd always thought of it as being kind of several layers of colour as opposed to just two (thinking here of those square sectioned Murano vases where the layers of colour are obviously visible).

Back to the bowl, there looks more than two layers. It's difficult to judge because of the way the colours reflect inside the glass. There is definitely a thin layer of turquoise on the inside, surrounded by a thicker pale yellow / straw colour. There is definitely straw on the outside and
I think another layer of turquoise somewhere inbetween  ??? I think it does have a 'halo' - whether it's brighter than my own is for others to judge!  ;D

I know LSA has commissioned stuff in this turquoise colour. I bought a friend a couple of LSA kidney shaped dishes a couple of years ago for a present in this turquoise, just plain cased. I've seen examples of the bowl posted by Christine (I think this is in the other Sommerso thread now, created as I type) but this bowl doesn't show that obvious cased colour.

Beranek has a similar-shaped piece listed under ashtray in their product catalogue, but the colour shown is more blue I think. May be worth checking out though, just in case. :) http://www.beranekglass.com/

Thanks for the link Anne. This one looks uncased from the side, but isn't solid turquoise. The straw colour is visible from the top. I'll try and take some better photos later.
