I got this ashtray/bowl about 12 years ago from a lady who had it for many years. I am almost sure it is Scandinavian, but I´m not sure of the brand. It could also be Italian. I had similar item that I got in the 1960s or 1970s, but it was red crystal and I lost that item :-( This one is a beauty, very heavy, about 570g and it measure 14.5cm x 9.8cm across and is about 6cm tall.

It is clear glass/crystal, the pattern is covered with clear glass/ crystal. Sorry English is not my first language :-)

I´m sure it is somewhat handmade. I really want to know it´s origin, what year it is from and if it is worth anything :-) I haven´t seen item like this anywhere for many years.

    Thank you for stopping by :-) I´m also thinking this could be Italian. I hope somebody can help me find out what it is. The lady I got it from passed away many years ago and she had great collection of beautiful things :-)

    BTW........your collection is wonderful!

    Yes it would be very interesting to know what it is. It is similar to many Murano glass pieces I have seen online. So perhaps it is Italian :-)

    Difficult to find bowl/ashtray like this :-) Anyone?

    my guess is this is most likely one-of-a-kind studio glass; without an artist signature or mark it'll be difficult to ID

    I love this ashtray! I am a semi-collector of vintage ashtrays but have nothing as fun as this. Great!
