    Hello. I just posted a previous find as well. This is the second bowl which I believe is Murano Glass in the Bullicanti style. It is clear glass although the picture has a slight tinge. Has small bubbles much like a carbonated drink and large bubbles throughout. The bowl has no makers marks. Is very smooth and heavy. It appears to have a pontil mark that has been smoothed down almost completely. It stands about 4 inches tall and is about 8 1/2 inches rim to rim. Do you think this is Murano Glass and if so is it possible to identify the maker? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

      Love the bubbles in this! Big bubbles!!
      I don't think it's Murano and with bubbles like that is more likely to be a studio piece
      It's a fantastic bit of controlled glass making.

      Thank you for the input racer4four. I know nothing about the art of glass making. Is this type of glass collectible? I have not seen any similar glass posted.
