Orange and uranium space age bowl
« on: March 20, 2010, 08:47:04 PM »
This has to be Murano doesn't it. Can't find in any of my books, so does anyone know who might have made/designed it.

(No Craig you borrow it to see if it fits on your coffee table, even if it does match the other bits  :P)

It's 14 cm across, 8 cm tall and 3.25 cm thick. It weighs 1.7 kg. outer clear, middle layer uranium, inner orange.

I would say definitely Murano....  I do not know who though. It is a very interesting design... I really like the look of it, especially from above...... I have not see that before....  very unique and a great find....

(You read my mind, about putting it on the coffee table that is....   ;D  It would go nicely with the grouping though...  )
I have been told that glass is my mistress......

The color combination and uranium remind me of some of the things done at Galliano Ferro. Others probably worked with similar colors, but GF may be a good place to start a search. I had one thing by the short-lived company Aldo Bon that had a similar combination. Aldo worked with Galliano Ferro for a while after Aldo left Aureliano Toso, so there may be a tie-in there. (All these names are making me dizzy reading them.)
