Beatiful lidded dish, measures 6" tall and 5" diameter.  Hoping someone might
know by the color, shape, or style who made this.

Thank you for looking.
Jennifer

ok, let me try these smaller pictures!

Hi Jennifer,
nice bowl, photos are fine.
I'm not a Murano expert, but I'm pretty sure thats where it was made. A possible maker of this style is
Barovier & Toso.
Hopefully someone else will spot your post and give you more information.
Regards
Andy

Jennifer, I have seen several bowls like this. They are Murano glass. I often see them attributed to Barbini, but I don't recall seeing one with a label. Maybe someone else will know for sure.

I looked around a bit and found a few pieces with glass like yours that had Barbini stickers. So I believe yours is Barbini. There are a few other powder jars like yours about now identified as Barbini. I think it is a good attribution.

Thank you so much Andy and TxSilver!

I'm glad you said this was a powder jar, I was wondering what to call it and kept thinking candy jar!

I appreciate your time and help.

I believe your jar is part of a vanity set. It may have had a couple of matching bottles that went with it. It will give you something to look for to complete your set.
