These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

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:
