Hi, I have these - Two of them.

They are VERY heavy these little suckers -- Honest.  The are very thick, and have slight swirls in them.  The base is polished with some wear.  Size is about 4.25 inches wide at the top, and about 2.50 high.  Anyone have any ideas....they look like they were made very well ..... Murano ?? or not ?? I am not sure.  Help, and Thanks.   ;)

Hi Rose,
This one's Chinese and relatively recent. Still, quite an attractive piece for a tea light in the bathroom.

Hi there -- Oh NO!!  Chinese Again...

I too have to say they are quite impressive as they weigh a little ton, and the swirls and the base are done quite well (I think).  yes, still would be nice somewhere in your house....but I will most likley say *Bye* to them.  They did not cost that (only $8) so no big lose I guess....

You Hit some (Fat lava glass), you lose some (this)..... :24:

Definitely Chinese. Saw one in a charity shop here a few months back with the safety warning label still attached to the bottom. They are quite a nice little bowl.

:) Kane, the link has pics of mine, which I bought new and boxed. The design name is "Scania", made in China, but no manufacturer was mentioned. :)

Rose, don't worry - your eye is definitely improving!

They even came boxed! The one I saw I assumed was sold at a '2 dollar shop'. It had a safety label on the bottom to keep away from flammable materials etc and to not leave unattended. Perfect size for a tea light candle. Was going to buy it to put in the bathroom but decided not to as I prefer the chunky scented candles LOL. The one I saw was probably an sold as an unboxed one and most likely sold with a tea light candle. Still a lovely bowl with some nice weight to it.
