This is a Cenedese bowl in rhomb form, 8 cm high, 23 cm long. In clear glass which is treated "a Scavo". And a layer of blue glass in the inside. The glass is nearle 2 cm thick.

There is a very good definition of the Scavo-technique in this forum http://j.mp/scavo-technique: "'Scavo' refers to a hot surface decoration technique whereby, during production, the surface of the glass is covered in salts and oxides, and sometimes ash, and then reheated to produce a rough opaque finish to replicate an ancient 'excavated' look."
