Hello

I've not posted on this site before, so hello to everyone.

I came across this little green bowl a few years ago now, I presume it is an ashtray and I wondered if anyone would be able to tell me if it is a Whitefriars? 

As you can see it has a marking on the bottom consisting of 4, 3 and 2 dots.. something I haven't come across before.
I am more interested more than anything just to find out who made it as it appears to be quite old (and worn) but it has controlled air bubbles.

I look forward to hearing from you and hearing your thoughts, thank you for your time

Kindest regards, Zoe

Hi Zoe, this is a Murano bowl from the 1970s and the dots are where the controlled bubble has been ground into when flattening. cheers Wolfie

Hi Wolfie

Is it.. I hadn't even thought of it being a Murano. Thank you so much for clearing this up for me as it has been bugging me for years!

Best wishes, Zoe
