100% Murano, the flecks are gold not aventurine. My first idea would be Barbini but that is only a hunch.

I agree with Ivo. I have had a couple of bowls like this one. The handles of these bowls look a lot like Fratelli Toso, but the bowls look more like Barbini to me. It would be nice if we could find one with a label so we could be sure.

Thank you both very much....I really like them..(though will probably sell one to support my  glass buying habit ;D) Tee hee.....
Or do you think I should sell as pair-though in this case-not sure that is important

any other info is greatly appreciated,  as I do so like to have my listings as complete and accurate as possible!!!

I have done some more looking....
and was hoping Javier would stop in and reply.....sure looks like he has one of these on his site....and I would love a confirmation that it is indeed rare Barbini (attributed) circa 1950s flip top bowl-

Yes, I think it is a Barbini bowl.
