Is this a Barbini bowl?
« on: December 04, 2009, 04:03:30 PM »
Excuse my asking yet another question, but is this a Barbini bowl/dish?

It is extremely well made, thin (beautiful when held up to the light) and balanced, with very few bubbles, and cheap at the price. I bought it on a whim but when it arrived the high quality was very apparent, especially when compared to the much heavier Fratelli Toso dishes. The gold speckling throughout and the obvious influence of seashells made me think of Barbini, and there are a number of similar things out there with a Barbini/Weil label of exactly the same dimensions. Even if it isn't Barbini I like this very much. Thanks for sharing your knowledge! rt

It appears to be a Fratelli Toso dish to me.
