Murano Bowl
« on: December 14, 2012, 02:15:58 PM »
Here is a very heavy bowl. Sommerso with green and yellow. Thick walls and dimples to main body. Squared off form 5" across, 3" high. Label. Any ideas on a maker? I see it ID'd as a geode on various sites

Hi Adam.  These large dimples always make me think Galliano Ferro.  Couple of relevant threads below:

Thanks for the links Wayne. Galliano Ferro is a good start. I know its a generic label, but this has some age and is of great quality.
