Hi got this today from a lady getting her stuff ready for the weekend garage sale. Picked up some collectible, and another piece of Murano (not posted yet)
....and then she invited me in for coffee since it was just her and me. She had a Murano bowl on the table and I said I liked it. Anyways, after I paid her for the collectibles I got (some paintings, pottery, etc)
she picked up this bowl and said "If I liked it, I could just have it..." Was I happy.
It is quite large, and very heavy. Size is about 9 inches by 11.5 inches Wide since one side is loped...and About 3 inches tall.
Believe it is amethyst color with one edge flipped over. Has lots of flecks of gold/Silver. The bottom is also polished and shows wear. If you look at the one pic where my *dirty* thumb is (was digging in the dirt here....lol)
you can see how big the bottom polished base is compared to my average sized thumb - at least I think it is an average Thumb.
Anyone advise me of date/maker/poss value of it?
I thank you for your replies.....and I am so Happy that she just gave this to me. :chky:***
