Large, double-headed tiger bowl/basin
« on: November 18, 2018, 04:19:06 PM »

I am brand new here. Iím in search of any info anyone can supply on a piece I found in a local thrift shop. The thrift shop had it listed as Murano but who knows? The tiger heads certainly look very similar (to my untrained eye) to some of the Murano tiger sculptures I have seen from the 50ís but I have tried doing many, many web searches for a piece like this one with zero luck.

To describe is about 19 inches long and about 7 inches wide. The glass of the main bowl is about 3/4 inch thick. I havenít weighed it but just ballparking, I would say it has to be between 8 and 10 pounds. The bowl is horizontally striped. The tiger heads are about 4 inches long each and (I guess?) serve as handles? Overall, the glass is brown/copper colored with a lot of gold colored flecks throughout. I am attempting to add photos...if my first attempt fails, I will try again in a follow-up email. Thanks in advance for any help.
