It does not look Murano. This is the first time I have seen this unusual bowl. It looks like it was modeled after mid-20th Century swan bowls that were common in the USA. The lack of detail makes me wonder if it might be Chinese.

These are very common in the UK, but I've never been tempted to pick one up and look at the base. Can we have a photo of the base please

We see similar things all the time in Australia, too. The one I saw had a polished bottom though.
