Generally speaking I prefer Murano ashtrays to Murano bowls, because the ashtrays seem so much more functional to me – as much as I appreciate good looks I also like things to be practical, but sometimes you just have to stand back and appreciate the beauty of something! I really can’t see any practical use for this shallow Murano-style bowl, but really who cares! It’s so, so lovely to look at! And it’s in pristine condition! A perfect piece for a collector!
P.S. A similar piece of glass is for sale on Etsy for $100 (over a R1000!)
Dimensions: 5cm tall x 24cm in diameter
