This elegant Murano art glass bowl was made in Italy by renowned glass manufacturer Salviati. The heavy console bowl has thick walls and is composed of clear glass featuring an abstract purple accent reminiscent of burgundy wine. The piece has a slightly asymmetrical shape with an elliptical rim. The bowl is quite heavy for its size due to its thick walls and weighs in at 3lbs 15oz. The foot bears an acid-etched mark reading "SALVIATI".

The bowl stands 3.375" tall as measured to the uppermost part of the rim and is 8.75" by " 8.5" as measured from the furthest points of the rim.
