The form of the bowl is a fairly generic geode. The smoothness of the top and uranium make me suspect Galliano Ferro, but it is only a guess. They did several geode forms similar to this. The base confuses me. The top looks so well finished, but the base looks like it was not polished completely. This would be unusual for GF, but I've learned that not all Murano is completely finished.

Thanks Anita,
I think the base was nicely finished, its just got a lot of wear to it, i reckon 50 years worth
