Murano Glass Geodes Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

Murano glass Geode bowls earn the name "geodes" due to their resemblance to geode rocks - rocks or stones that have been sliced neatly in two. The geode bowls therefore have a perfectly flat, wide rim. Murano glass geodes consist of two or more layers of cased glass. They were made my several Italian glass manufacturers from the Venetian island of Murano, and as such it is virtually impossible to identify the maker of an unmarked bowl. Popular geode shapes include circular, square, triangular, figure eight, and kidney shaped among others.
