Well i have a vase in the same range as Annes except it has a small battuto panel on the front and i have about thirty pieces of Morreti satinato at the last count and i promise you the finish is the same and i have read several books that say satinato is achieved by dipping in acid.

 "frit coated surfaces"  is usually referred to as "coralene" or "Mathey crinkles". Your creamer is the former.
Enamel in glass terms is coloured glass powder - get used to it.
Satinato is one of the many types of acid finishes - there are different recipes for achieving different results.

OK, the Dartington vase has an acid finish... I can live with that.

I'm going to start another thread to discuss the OT issues of coralene, frit, and enamel.
