Nice little bowl, Ardy, says someone who likes these little pieces. They might not be great art, but they're reassuring. Didn't Galliano Ferro do bowls with the colour stopping below the rim?

My family has given up buying me presents of glass or books on glass, muttering something about it making them codependents.

I think I am beyond that David. My partner is in the 'so what did you buy' mode, unless it is perfume bottles and then she wakes up and in full attendance she asks:

"What's it on for"
"Show me the enlargements"
"what's the shipping costs"
"Do you think it is real"
"I don't care, I just want it"

So the table turns, and instead of being a cost loss centre, I become an important team member.

Galliano Ferro has a similar shape and dual colours on

So you may have solved it for me. It certainly looks close.

You are brilliant David. I never thought we would get close to attributing this item gave up on it almost from the start. :hiclp:
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
