Italian term or phrase: vetro soffiato bullé
La lampada da tavolo della linea Orione accende la tavola natalizia o il pranzo solenne della festa facendo risplendere calici e stoviglie. Lo stelo è realizzato in metallo cromato, mentre i diffusori possono essere in policarbonato bianco o in vetro soffiato bullé o in vetro acidato blu, bianco o giallo. Gradevole il design aereo in forma di fiore.

I got quite a few hits for the previous one ("vetro acidato") but they were all Italian sites and i got zilch for this one. Could vetro acidato also be frosted glass (like I found) or acid-treated?
bullè has really got me beat.
thanks

Explanation:
Hi Nina,

bullé is the french word for bubbled (perfect).

Sounds like this glass has air inclusions as you can imagine.
