Italian bowl or ashtray?
« on: November 02, 2007, 06:41:59 PM »
I bought this a a trodelmarket recently, it is a very deep purple, it has a remnant of a label in a flat base but not enough of it to see any letters or words. i think it is Italian.....Kev  8)

Some one on another forum suggested this could be Murano.......

i'd say murano is a safe bet as to origin (color, shape and the label all point in that direction). no ideas on a specific maker, though.
