I believe Murano (Blue clear Glass and Bubbles too)
« on: February 17, 2012, 01:45:16 PM »
 :hi:

I bought this from what they call here a Super Duper Garage sale last weekend.  Pretty sure it is Murano.  The info is as follows:

~ Size is about 6.75 long
~ About 7 inches wide
~ About 2.75 inches tall
~ Weighs:  about 2.13 pounds

Has 4 (cig??) rests on it, with one edge flipped over.  Bottom shows very Good wear.  Controlled bubbles in it.  The rim itself is about .50 inch thick.  I guess kinda a heart shape to it.

Murano?  ( I think, IMHO).  Any ideas on the maker, or age?  I am 'guessing' maybe 1960's by the wear (??) but just a guess.  Thank you for your time, and consideration in viewing this item.

Certainly Murano but will be hard to ID Rose. Good size and pretty colour.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

The bowl sure is Murano antiquerose, and the phone is Japanese but probably made in China.

Hi

Here is some information regarding the technique used to create this bowl which is called the "PULEGUSO" technique.  As to actual furnace attribution - very difficult.

Glass with a spongy appearance, with a great many air bubbles, to the point that it is almost opaque. The homogeneous and refined molten mass (with no air bubbles or impurities) is vigorously mixed in with salts (generally sodium carbonate or bicarbonate) that decompose due to the heat and liberate gases (carbon dioxide) dispersed in the form of bubbles of varying diameters.

Dean, I don't know much about glass terminology, but I don't think Rose's bowl qualifies as 'pulegoso' -- it doesn't look spongy. :-\

Deffo not Pulegoso, which is literally thousands of tiny bubbles which give a "frothy" effect.

Hi there:

I did not think was Puleguso in appearance (IMHO) I would have just thought my bowl was (maybe) called Controlled Bullicante (Bubbles).  I thought Puleguso was lots of small bubbles compacted.....Like almost a *foam* look to it.  Like you would see waves in the water when it makes foam.

To me, my bowl kinda has these types of bubbles (IMHO) Here - with a Label ? Genuine Venetian label

Is this not Puleguso Here

Mine looks more like the first example than the second, IMHO.    Thanks

HI Guys

Thanks very much for picking up my mistake there, TOO many hours on the computer.  It is indeed Bullicante so thanks again.  Tired eyes are not a good thing especially when offering advice. 

Cheers!
