Large Wavy Striped Footed Bowl/Tazza for ID, Murano?
« on: April 05, 2018, 06:21:53 PM »
Hi,
I wonder if anyone recognises this distinctive bowl/tazza which I picked up recently?  It stands 7" high x 10" in diameter (18 cm x25.5 cm) and weighs nearly 2.2kg.  The base has a slightly yellowish tinge - it reminds me a bit of the bases of Murano cockerels.
Any info is much appreciated.

Hi,
the decor of your bowl reminds me of pieces like this cockerel >> https://picclick.co.uk/Vintage-Glass-Cockerel-Rooster-Multi-Coloured-Heavy-192481167597.html

I have definitely seen these pieces with "Made in Romania" stickers, the decor comes on cockerels, fish, bowls, vases.
Once the label gets lost, they are usually offered as Murano or Czech...

Thanks for your response, sorry it's taken me so long to acknowledge it - I've  been away, with very erratic internet service.
Your suggestion certainly looks an excellent match for my piece - so, I think, mystery solved.  Many thanks.
