Huge Bowl - Barbini not Chalet?
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:28:41 PM »
Here's a huge and finely made sculptural bowl.  The style reminds me generally of Chalet, by my instincts tell me Murano, and more specifically, Barbini or Cendedese.  Can anyone set me straight?
Thanks,
Charles.

It does not look like Murano to me. However, there is a lot that I haven't seen...

Whoever made it, it is impressive.
