Ahhh, this vase - it was the subject of a debate some time ago:

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,6982.0.html

Despite the seller being told it was a "rebadged" Chance handkerchief vase, s/he remained obstinate that it was genuine.

I have queried this with them once again.

I'm not sure how peelable a Waterford label is, but if it was a paper type which was gummed, not self-adhesive, then it would be a doddle to transfer it over.

In fairness to the seller, I did point out that I would ask my contacts to confirm whether Chance ever supplied Waterford (the only way I can see the label would get affixed legitimately) and he has replied:

Following a flat denial by Tony that Chance ever made it (forwarded to the seller), I got the following response:
