I'd say Murano. My reluctance to label anything Poli is that I've never seen a reliable, i.e. a decent book or reputable auction house, attribute anything like these ashtrays or the original vase in this thread to Poli. 

This is the the year that the book Seguso Vetri D'Arte, "the complete catalogue since 1933" by Heiremans is supposed to appear. That should settle some of the arguments.

Just done a Flavio Poli hit on ebay. Serach results 95 described as Flavio Poli. In my opinion on 2-3 may have been designed by him. I didn't include the one that was by him.

I would describe that bowl as Murano. I would not add a name to it as no label is attached.

I am more inclined toward Cenedese or G. Ferro for the bowl, though like you, Kane, I wouldn't have tried to attribute it without some documentation. It looks like uranium glass on the outside.

Shugdens, the 2nd link you show is probably Ferro too, but I am not going to bet my money on it not unless I could examine it in my hands. 

I too am ready for the SVdA book to come out.  It will help me solve some mysteries of my own.  I have two pieces that I have questions about.

I'm about to list two more but just have them as Murano or Bohemian, I think the Cerbska but going to let them find there own price & people make there own mind up today.
There from the job lot I bought as Venitian before xmas.
