Is this a Toso bowl? Looks like it to me. TIA
« on: September 06, 2007, 02:37:31 AM »
From the research that I have done it looks like a Toso to me but I don't know anything about Toso. If it is a Toso can any body tell me something about it like the age or anything.

I have seen quite a few of these types of bowls that are cut in different ways. Like you, I thought they looked like Fratelli Toso. I haven't seen one with a label, unfortunately, so I have never been certain. Maybe someone will know for sure.

A couples of months ago, I bought a pair of light green vases with random markings (murrine?) like in this picture.  They have the red Lavorazione Arte Murano labels.  I can't find anything definitive on it yet, but I think these labels indicate that these pieces were actually made in South America using the Murano processes.  So, there's a question of whether this is actually real Murano glass.

Maybe someone else on this forum knows more about it?

I'm not so sure about this being Toso. Pina doesn't show any bowls cut like this in her Toso book. Is it opalescent or smoky white? It's hard to say from the picture.

David, I looked in  Pina's book also, although it  doesn't show any bowls cut like this it does show the same look. It is opalescent. Thanks for your help.
