Good evening

Could anybody help me identify this piece of glass?
My thoughts are Muranoglass?
Bowl or ashtray?
Any information would be great

It's a clear glass internal turquoise blue. The underneath clear glass has gold leaf turning into silver leaf on the ends

It measures 5" X 5" Hieght 2.4"

Almost certainly made in Murano but I doubt you'll find a maker, as this style of ashtray was common. I also suspect it's just silver leaf and it's the top layer of glass making it look gold. Have you tried it under a UV light?
