    I knew I had to have this the moment I spotted it at an estate sale on Friday. I’m no glass expert, but looks to be mid century Italian maybe?

    I added a photo of the underside. The dimensions are 12” diameter and 5.5” height. Thank you!

      Any glass experts have thoughts about the maker of this 12” bowl? Does it look Venetian?

      I think it's a desk lamp shade, that would be held up by 3 arms from the center of the lamp. Very nice, I dont recognize the decor, but it seems to be 1930s deco glass. Lots of European glass lamp makers at that point. Funny I have a lamp with 3 arms but not shade from France....lol

      truth or dare,, thanks so much. That’s very interesting, I never would have thought of that possibility. However, it does have the flat spot for the bowl to rest on.

      Can you post an image of the underside? I would think it to be a bowl if the underside is flat. Also curious as to the dimensions.

      Welzebub, I added a photo of the underside. The dimensions are 12” diameter and 5.5” height. Thank you!

      I do not know who made it, or where, but I would say it was definitely made to be a bowl, and not a lamp shade. It also strikes me as newer (1960's on) as opposed to being an earlier piece. Regardless of that, it is a really pretty piece of glass.

      mattress+cop, thanks, I had another idea about this, if a bowl of this size, might be a centerpiece console bowl that might have had a plinth or metal stand to fit in. Very nice.
