    I can't seem to find anything on google either.So this is the first one.

    Quite a large piece at approx 410mm in diameter (approx 16 inches ish) and about 195mm at the highest point.

    Im not sure what the base is made of but I'm assuming either pot metal or resin.

    It has the name Bosson, Besson, Rosson, or Resson i can't read it at all.

    If anyone has any idea about this please share. This is a lovely piece. Hand made as there are tool marks and a few slight imperfections in it.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    [edit] I originally posted this on my phone so don't know what happened. it all went to crap and I couldn't edit it. Hopefully this all works.

    This is R. Robean Italian glassware probably from around the 1990s. Sorry - can't do links but if you Google the name you will find similar pieces.

    Awesome thank you for this. I have done a little searching on google and while I can find similar bases not the exact type of bowl.

    Would the other one I have also be a Robean even though it has no name on it?

    Many thanks again.

    You're all fantastic here.

    The other one is so similar it must also be Robean - are you sure there isn't a name tucked in amongst the foliage on the base, maybe well hidden?
    Different colour but this dish is quite similar to yours- FB_IMG_1670669616896.jpg
