Ruby Red Bowl w/Bubbles, and Gold..???
« on: March 01, 2008, 07:18:14 AM »
Hi, I just bought this, and have no idea (but do I ever).  It is quite large, and has bubbles that get bigger towards the top.  Also has like gold flakes (?) on the outer ruffled edge.  The bottom appears to show wear.  Not sure if you call this ruby red, or not.... :spls:

Anyone have any ideas on maker, and year?  TIA

thanks David for those links...GREAT....maybe this is that -- but not sure, I posted here just in the *Glass* page for now -- maybe this topic should be moved over to Murano......I guess the MOD will deciide..

 :)

And a bit off this topic:

And I note in the GG ( http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-9189 ) your ad for venetian glass, there is a pix there of a lamp with a swirled base....prehaps I can attach that link over to my posting Murano Figurine with swirled base

As the threads allude to: probably 1950s Venetian, possibly made in Murano. It might take months or even years before we find a definite conclusion, and there do seem to be many makers/copyists around (as always), which does confuse the issue.

hmmm....the bubbles are spaced differently and the eBay listing has some stretched bubbles too.
Also I lined to two pics of the bases up and again they are not the same almost different style.

Sorry if its not helpful

I think you could find quite a few similar pieces without ever getting a very definite attribution. Your bowl looks more deeply lobed, which might account for the different looking bottom. It looks like Murano, but that's about all that can be suggested. If the piece from the Vancouver seller, 120246773411, gets anywhere near $175, I have a whole bunch of glass that's going on eBay immediately!
