I would say it's one of the most common designs for Murano bowls/ashtrays. Can be found in a few different colors. Age...1960's?

Yes, it is very much like (in shape) my murano bowl.

Here's the link. Not sure how to get from the link to having the picture on the message. Could a moderator help, please.

Hi there, I just happen to find this link (and picture) and it looks exactly like the one I have. 

Click here-Murano Amber Cased Silver Leaf Flower Bowl

See photo 3 in the link, to compare to mine photo 1.  They look the same to me.  Could mine be Seguso, circa 1950?  Would that be a positive ID?  Opinions?

TIA  :)
