Cute little Bowl( Amber)
« on: March 26, 2008, 11:54:12 PM »
This little bowl / ashtray as s swirl one side where the other is just turned, i presume this would have been made for one person, so for the individual nice quality and quaint more for a lady i think. possible Czech or Swedish would you say stands 2ins high 4.5ins in diameter polished pontil was found and bought with the Caithness vase i posted. for a mere £4 am in the process of setting up a site to expose my finds on the unsuspecting people of this world  >:D well got to give some one a laugh ;) adding a photo of my glass finding spree today. everyone can get a sigh of relief for the next few days because i am busy laying the floor for my shed, at the bungalow. and laying the tiles in the kitchen.  ;D dont all  :hiclp: at once please. Cheers for all the help.

Yes, I do believe it's Murano glass.

Yes, Murano, but impossible to date or attribute to maker. Many companies, some, famous, Fratelli Toso and Barbini, for example, and some less famous made shell-type bowls like this. As Andy McConnell writes in Miller's 20th century Glass ( a book I think you'd find very useful), Murano makers "routinely copied" each others' work, believing they were paying a compliment to the other designer. Another book that would help identify the Murano you come across is Pina's Italian Glass: Century 20. I found having these books saved me a lot of internet searching and helped me develop a better eye for picking out glass.
