Hi,

I'm hoping someone will recognise the maker of my heavy glass bowl. It's rich brown / amber in colour, darker at the top and bottom.

It's 19cm wide and 8,5cm tall. The bottom is quite thick, with 2,5cm separating the base from the inside well.   The base is completely flat with substantial wear.  I can't make out if the edge has been beveled or not. The bowl weighs 1639g.

It's a well-made piece, but I'm afraid because it's so plain, it will be near impossible to find an attribution.

Thank you for looking.

I've got a vase in a similar exciting colour-way.  :) Measures 12cm high x 9cm at its widest weighs 660g with some of that weight being its Archimede Seguso label on its highly polished base which sort of has a bevelled edge. Just a thought.

Alastair, thank you very much for taking the time to reply.  Murano never crossed my mind.  I'll take a look into it.    :-*

Anik for some reason, when I looked at your bowl, I thought Norway - but I can't tell you why and I'm probably wrong :)
Maybe Magnor,did they do a colour like this?

Also Faglaviks Glasbruk used a lot of this colour, so maybe Sweden another country to look at. 
link to FG here although I don't know if that is their kind of glass

It's a colour that in my opinion doesn't photograph well as it's so dark, but looks great,  like delicious treacle, under lighting.
