Here is a wonderful 1950/60's glass bowl / ashtray, most likely made on the island of Murano
, near Venice, Italy, by the Ferro Italarts
factory. A labelled example can be found [here
]. In a stunning combination of blue glass encased in pink glass. Also has a wonderful controlled bubble effect known as bullicante
the plastic stand is for display purposes only and is not included.
Measures approx 1.5 inches tall by 3.75 inches in diameter at widest point.
No chips or cracks, just a couple of streaks in the glass to one side of the rim, from the manufacturing process, shown in final picture.
