Give it a good polish first, and then you just can't take a bad photo of a good Murano geode bowl. I only wish their glass wasn't so soft. This one was nigh impeccable when I bought it second-hand from a European dealer, quite reasonably, and I see now that I've left my marks in small ways. Sigh. Well, this becomes a good meditation on the transience of beauty.
Does anyone know the name of this bowl's maker? (It's unsigned, presumably because it wasn't up to his standards. It meets mine. I'm chipped and scratched in places, too.)
Update: thank you all for your valuable input. I'm told with some authority that is is a late piece by Mandruzzato.
