Ashtray or bowl - Murano?
« on: March 31, 2008, 04:17:40 PM »
Another of my auction wins was an interesting ashtray or bowl, with silver and gold flecks in the glass, as well as lots of other colours.

Could anyone give me any information about it please?

Looks a bit like an AVeM Tutti Frutti to me.

Thanks Leni for the pointer :)

I have googled AVeM and found this page.  The first one on the page is the same shape and a similar pattern, so could this one be the same type?  It is called a latticino millefiori bowl.  Is tutti Frutti another name for latticino millefiori or are they two different things?
