Chris - in the second photo it looks as if the top is not flat, or most likely it is the camera at wide angle. If it is not flat then my theory of a powder bowl falls on that.

David  - I think you are right, it might not be ground. The second photo Chris posted doesn't clarify it. Chris have you any ideas?
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

The Rim is flat and highly polished, almost looks like it's been sliced a bit like a fossil when they cut the stones in half and polish them up, my OH hates it says it looks like a set of false teeth  ;D
Maybe it was sliced from the 'whole' into 2 pieces ?

My OH likes cheap glass, like those long necked perfume bottles with impossible dippers that sell on ebay for $5. So I have a continuous battle to keep them out of the house. Luckily she likes perfume more and I have found a couple of working Murano perfume bottles that she can put it into.

My theory still stands about a powder bowl but it is a fine piece of glass even as a normal bowl or ashtray.
