Hi again Laura,
I still have that gut feeling that says this piece is Italian, but the Vase posted by taylog1 looks very similar.
It would be increadible if I could have the 2 pieces side by side and inspect the decoration and the actual color of the glass. I know it is very hard to know for sure in pictures, but the vase posted has an orangy-pink tint, and my bowl has more of a clear smoky feel. Just to mention it, since we all know artists play aound with colors all the time.
Also noticed a difference in the decoration itself. It looks like the vase has both yellow and orange swirls ovelaping, where in my bowl the 2 colors are purposely separate.
The Vase (link) that Peter posted has a wildly abstracted decoration, where mine has , I would say a more "controlled" abstraction, if that makes sence...
Laura! Cant believe you won the Toso Swirl vase for $1.
Where you distracting me??? :lol: :wink:
