Hi,
honestly I think pratically impossible to identify.
This is a kind of item that the 99% of the Murano glassmakers have blown at least one time in their life.

I agree but isn't it a lovely bowl? Not sure if it is early, it could have been made quite recently. There are a few similar bowls available on our local ebay.

Nice thing to have providing you didn't pay too much for it.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

The label fell off the glue is quite old, the label is very stiff where it is old, there are 4  colours iclear, blue, a sort of pinky colour and white. Pontil is ruff and  unpolished.  I have seen one that looks very similar attributed to Aureliano Toso.
it is at the bottom of the page.
