"Folded" Centerpiece Dish, General Murano Label....
Hi there, just me pestering you all again.
This bowl is about 12.25" long and 4.75" tall. Nice ground and mirror polished bottom, and just a generic silver foil Murano label.
Any ideas on maker or age?
I sure appreciate your expertise!
Hi. To me it appears to be a generic Murano bowl, but the label is similar to the Fratelli Toso blue foil label. However, I am not certain that Fratelli Toso has made similar bowls. Does anyone else have any ideas?
The label is not Fratelli Toso. I have seen this type of label on several things. I think eglass is right in calling it generic. It is a pretty bowl, but I have no idea who might have made it.
Hi all. I agree that it's generic. If it didn't have the "made in Italy" label on it, with it's size, I might wonder if it weren't a Chalet centerpiece bowl actually.
Thanks, you all. Funny you'd mention Chalet, that was my first thought when I saw it on the shelf, before I found the label.
I appreciate the input.
Chalet makes some really nice pieces too, and sometimes it can be difficult to tell the difference with certain pieces. There's one seller on eBay who's from Canada who *insists* that Chalet and Murano are the same thing, and gets very snooty and pompous if you try to say anything different, lol, even when it's backed up with proof that it's not the same.
It's a pretty bowl, and would make a great centerpiece bowl for your dining table, especially for holidays; or for fruit if you want to use it more frequently. You could also get a smallish, rectangular piece of styrofoam, and stick short-ish, cut flower stems into it for a pretty fresh flower display, but that will probably leave water marks after a while. Or just display it in a cabinet or on a shelf. What are your plans for it?
