Please see photos for best description and to determine condition for yourself. Measures approximately 6 in diameter and 2 deep. Alfredo Barbini was born in 1912 to a prominent glass-making family on the island of Murano, Italy.
He began working as a glassblower in 1925 at the age of 13 and was recognized as a master glassblower by 1929, at the age of 17. He worked for various glass makers until he opened his own firm in 1950, Vetreria Alfredo Barbini (Alfredo Barbini Glassworks). He received many awards during his career, and he died in 2007.The free-form bowl is made of opaque pink glass with a clear glass overlay. It has gold leaf inclusions and a Bullicante (bubble) quilt effect. The pink color on top of the bowl in the photos is close to the actual color.
The camera was unable to capture the actual pink color on the bottom of the bowl. It is a deeper pink hue and more saturated than in the photos. Camer Glass of New York was the distributor for Barbini's work in the US.
