Quilted Aventurine Bowl - Purplish
« on: December 03, 2010, 12:10:30 AM »
 :hi: I am pretty sure this is Murano ( or Venetian)  :X: but I could be wrong.  Of course I am going by the amount of copper Aventurine that is in it.

It is really pretty.  I actually had a hard time taking pics of it to show the Bubbles, the aventurine, the swirls, and the (kinda) quilted effect.  Please do not mind IF I post extra pics here -- as I took some with a Flash, and without a flash for the quilting pattern/bubbles....found it hard to get a good pic due to the sparkle...

It is:

~ about 3.25 inches HIGH
~ about 8 inches LONG
~ about 6 inches WIDE

Lots of aventurine, and there are bubbles in the quilted design, and the aventurine/bubbles all swirl.  The base show some very good wear.  In some pictures it looks black/or dark brown -- but when I held up to the light source -- clearly it is amethyst in color. 

Murano/Venetian ??  To me it has all the bells and whistles I like.  Lots of Aventurine/bubbles/quilted pattern......and Glass.....LOL.  Any idea on age or maker for this one.

I Love it !!!  :thup:  TIA  :kissy:

I would say definitely Venetian, but I don't know who did it. It looks like a well made bullicante bowl/ashtray. Nice find, Rose.
