The label on that piece is a Fratelli Toso label. I still lean towards Barbini for your bowl in my opinion antique...

*** Bump --

 :hi: Was just taking some other pics of things, so I thought I would add here to see if it helps at all.  Again, this is a Super Sized Bowl.  I put my hand under it and took a pic with a Flash so you could see my hand, compared to the size of the bowl.  It is quite the size.  I could hardly hold it while trying to take the pic (and steady my hand...lol).  I also took a pic of the polished pontil on the bottom with a ruler to show how wide that is......the polished pontil is about 4.5 inches across itself.  It must have taken a couple people to work on this item when it was made, as I find very heavy...

If I hold it upside down in my hand.....it reaches all the way to the (bend area) at my elbow, see the last pic.

Any new leads, or ideas.....Thanks  :kissy:
