Guess what?  We went to the Cambridge Glass Fair - and I didn't buy anything!  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  But husband did!   :D  :D  :D  He is becoming a real 'Glassaholic', too  :lol:

He bought himself a paperweight and this little leaf dish. We were quite 'taken' with it because of the snipped edges    :D

Interestingly, I have a crown paperweight in identical colours!   :shock:

Good for hubby!   :D  :D   It's a very nice Venetian (I assume) dish - the snipped edges are unusual, aren't they?  Looks like Jonathon is going for pink too...  :shock:  :wink:  :D  :D

Where's your paperweight/marble?  Are you going to post a pic of it?  I'd love to see it - can you do a macro shot and show the detail?  :D  :D

This is Italian - it is similar to two pieces I posted a week ago and have had no posts to :cry:

Called latticino dishes or latticino trinket dishes they have been made for 150 years but your one like mine are perhaps nearer 1950 - 60s or even later

I have seen the serrated edge a few times, but only more recently which makes me believe that this form of decoration is a more modern trend - they have started turning up at my local dealers in bundles in the last few months

They come in all shapes including small bowls - I have not seen a label yet - they seem to have a broken or dotted pontil

Are they a modern take on the latticino dishes I have or are they indeed contemporary?

Having had no feedback on my thread I hope you have more success as it will help us both perhaps in terms of manufacturer ID
