, near Venice, Italy. Decorated with silver leaf, and multicoloured canes. Surrounded with an outer casing of red glass. Most likely made by the Fratelli Toso
factory, due to similar bowls bearing a "Castle"
import label, which is almost always associated with Fratelli Toso production. Ref: [click here
