It looks like a Fratelli Toso bowl. They did bowls of this type in different colors. They remind me of a wavy version of Barbini's circus tent bowls. It is a very pretty bowl.

I had always seen this bowl identified as Fratelli Toso. There is a bowl on eBay right now (330196712676) that is identified as Florentine. Now I have questions about the FT attribution.

I thought I should add for the record that the label reads "A Florentine Original Venetian Design made in Italy." It is probably just an import label. The labels can be so confusing. Without knowing the import companies, it is hard to judge the labels' significance.
