The colours are similar to a very wide narrow Barbini dish i have that looks like a pair of outstretched bird wings minus the bird .

Are all these colours in the Barbini bowl? Is your bowl what Pina in Italian Glass p.153 of Italian Glass refers to as a "wing bowl" (ribbed, lattimo inside, golder powder exterior)?

I could be way off, but this ashtray looks more generic Murano to me.
