Heavy pink bowl cased in clear crystal

Pink core heavily cased in clear crystal, more triangular in shape than it looks in the photo, 5" from corner to corner, heavy quality looking piece......

Gorgeous piece. Lovely form and colours.  Another reason why I can't wait for the Seguso Vetri d'Arte book to come out.  That's my first guess.

What a cracker of an item.   Lovely finishing on what would have been a lovely geode bowl in its own right.

I also had the idea of Seguso VdA, though I also wondered about Cenedese. The texture of the outer glass make me lean toward Seguso.

My first thought was Seguso on this. How thick is the glass?

Really is a nice piece, afraid the photos, which I didn't take  don't really do it justice.
Will take some more at the weekend. the glass is over an inch thick and weighs 1.3 kg

Gorgeous piece of glass. I was wondering if it had a lid at one stage and was part of a perfume set? The flat area around the top got me thinking. Don't think it is an ashtray.

SVDA is a good guess David,  what a great looking thing?

I can't see it with a lid, especially if it's intended to be functional.  The corners rule it out a powder box, or whatever they're called. I'd hate to have that top flat surface hidden as it looks great.

Agree David it is a lovely top, it appears, from the photo, to be ground across the inner surface of the top and that may have been done to accept a lid. I think there is a good chance it was a powder bowl.

With a triangular top and a matching lid it would make this bowl very interesting (maybe unique) therefore worth a fair amount of dough. If it ever was such a thing.

I see what you mean, but is that ground glass or where the pink/opalescent section starts?
