This one has such an odd shape and the color combination to me is really pretty.

Again no idea on maker or year. Terry

1950s or '60s. This biomorphic form is very common, and was done by many companies. I'd guess that yours is by Alfredo Barbini, as I've had several similar ones with their label.  

I started collecting Murano glass with these bowls, and still have a huge soft spot for them.

Sorry for the delay in replying, a bit behind and with the holiday season coming up, that will get worse. Thank you Laura.  Terry
