I just talked to another group member about zebrati. We had a discussion a year or so on the board about what zebrati is and isn't. I think we didn't reach a definite conclusion -- often the case. I thought I would post a link to a picture of a Barovier zebrati vase. We don't want to highjack Rose's thread, so we can always start a new thread to talk about what zebrati is. (Or we can find our old thread)

Great info there Anita -- No worry about a Hi-jack.  :kissy: :kissy:

I still confused on my heart bowl as it does not look like a spider-web, or Zebrati (IMHO).  To me there still looks to be some differences when I really look at it.  I have not found anything like it yet either...

I was suggesting a trina effect because the aventurine was pulled in such a nice wavy manner that made it resemble other companies' trina. Personally I think this bowl is Fratelli Toso, mainly because it was the first company that came to mind when I saw it.  :) Rose's bowl is not zebrati. Here is a picture of glass I consider as zebrati.

I agree.....
