Nice bowl or ashtray, but not unusual. In fact, it would be more unusual to find a bullicante piece without some form of inclusion.

I don't think you could determine the maker of this piece reliably. Most Murano furnaces would produce something like this. Pieces like this are for us to enjoy without ever knowing their parentage.

It's not aventurine though; that's copper coloured. It's either silver or mica (silver looks more likely)
