I just got this big bowl yesterday.  It is a Val St. Lambert bowl.  Outer is amethyst, inner is a citrine/uranium color.  There is also an interesting cutting on the bottom ring.  The bowl is 9 inches in diameter, 4 1/2 inches tall, bottom diameter is 5.25 inches.  It weighs 3.8 pounds! 

Does anyone have any VSL references that show pattern names?

Dave, the closest match to the upper cutting is VSL 1904/1905 Rhine wine Römer VERDI
I did not find a bowl in this shape, I'm afraid.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.

I noticed this thread was still, sort of, open ...

If it is the first piece that is on your site under VSL, then it is actually a vase, model 'Nordique' S/383 design Joseph Simon for the Fantasy Crystal catalogue of 1926. I've added the image from the catalogue.
