Wayne, as soon as I saw your name, I also remembered a similar shape by GF. The company was formed before corroso was banned (or limited), so it is quite possible. I can't think of any corroso I've seen from GF, but it could be out there.

Thanks a lot, Wayne and Anita!
I searched a little for Galliano Ferro pieces, but didn't come across the one you refer to; the only one (attributed) with dimples I could find is in Christine's gallery: http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=497
But the style of this one looks different I think...

Worst part is this piece reminds me of several companies/makers...Barbini, SVdA or Archimede Seguso. Definitely a high quality piece and I reckon not very common as well. The uranium casing throws me though. If it had a strong sommerso effect I could probably help more...

I have a "similar" piece like yours...still unindentified...

Thanks very much, Kane! I like the crackle effect in your bowl.

I'm not sure if one could refer to my bowl as Sommerso? -- Outer Uranium green layer, inner brown layer (the dark and light parts are due to strongly varying thickness of glass I guess). Why are you thrown by the Uranium casing?

At least the hotworked, slighly unusual shape does't look "generic" to me, which leaves some hope that it could be identified one day :)

I mean't i am better with sommerso pieces. Uranium is uncommon here in good glass, i see it mostly in Europe in the US so i don't have many pieces. Also, I own a few pieces but have never seen them glow!!!  :o They are all packed away.

And this piece is generic...it looks really good...a great find... :hiclp:
