15" Zanfirico Dish, and 15" Very Cool Whatsit?
« on: March 28, 2008, 10:09:01 PM »
I've got two 15" bowls here. The zanfirico one, I'm sure is Italian (F. Toso maybe?), and the other one I think must be Italian also, but I've never seen the design before. The "fingers" radiating from the center look like white with aventurine swirls, then surrounded in green. Any help you can offer on makers would be much apreciated!

Oh, I forgot to mention the elongated controlled bubbles between the green fingers. Hopefully they are showing ok in the photos.

Does anyone think the second one could be F. Toso?

Neither bowl looks like Fratelli Toso to me. Maybe there will be some other opinions.
