I'm afraid it's very hard to tell anything from your images.
Would it be possible to take more pics. on a white background? - including a good, clear base shot.
I would suspect you have something good there, it looks as if there's been a lot of work finishing it off, cutting and polishing, but I really can't tell what it is what shape it is or how the colours have been put together in it.

I think you might have had some trouble resizing your pics too? They don't "blow up" very big.

It took me a long time to get posting images right - there's lots of techie info here..

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/board,22.0.html

I use paint shop pro, the instructions for that are very clear - and it's the compression bit that's really important - so that it can be blown up big.

Your bowl seems to be faceted all over, the colours are gorgeous - but I still can't work out how they were put together. (sorry).
Murano isn't my area, I don't know if this is or not Murano, but the cutting and colours and substantiality are kind of whispering Val St. Lambert or Moser to me......

How big is it?

I'm positive somebody here will know! Just be patient until the right person comes along.

Welcome to the gmb!
