HI  :)

It certainly is Murano dating from the 50s or so.  The give away is the pressed and applied prunts at the end of the handles and also, the Venetian twist handle. A stunning piece as Ruby Glass is made from the addition of 24 carat gold.  The more gold that is added to the glass when blown, the deeper the red

Lisa, many companies made glass like this. My first impression was that the bowl is an AVeM piece. I've seen this type rim and foot on some things that they made, so it reminded me of their work. Of course, I cannot say for sure.
