Interesting modern Murano bowl. It is clear glass over pink with silver mica flecks or spangles over white. The edges are cut in a spiral / twist. The base has been polished flat and there is a numbered stamp  and another with country of manufacture [Italy]. Not sure that the pestle is a marriage with the bowl because the pestle is silver fleck within clear glass. Small but heavy. Height is 3.5 cms and 15 cms at widest point. Purchased at auction in mid 1980s. Was it designed to be purely decorative?
