Thanks Christine,
more good news, i even got a reply from the V & A  ;D

'Dear Andy,
thank you for your enquiry. I have shown your photographs to our expert
in Glass, who agrees that your vase is indeed Venetian and dates from
1870's to 1900. It might have been made by Salviati or the Compagnia
Venezia Murano, but he thinks it could also have been made by one of the
other Muranese firms- as these often copied each others designs and
models. The foot has been off and might be a replacement.
I hope you find this information useful.
Yours sincerely
Rowan Bain

Hmmm, what to do next ::)

I am leaning more toward Salviati for CVM. The prunts look like they are made of girasol -- a milky blue glass that Salviati used very often. One thing that may help to get a better idea is to feel the prunts for flaws. Salviati & Co. was often criticized in the late 19th Century for being a bit less than perfect with their glass. I often find their early pieces had a lot of sharp points and imperfections in their decoration.

Something I have wondered about CVM is if the companies making glass for them (e.g., Artisti Barovier, Salviati, Fratelli Toso, & Ferro) made glass of the same designs for CVM. On one occasion I saw a perfume bottle attributed to Salviati for CVM, but later saw the same bottle with an Artisti Barovier label. 19th Century glass can be very confusing to attribute with certainty. This may have been why V&A mentioned that it could have been made by one of the other companies.

Its still on the shelf, ive enjoyed it for a while but its been a bit forgotten now,so i may have some fun, and move it on to a new owner in the near future.
Sheldon Barr, said he had a possible buyer for it, but that was in the days before the
financial collapse  ;D
I wonder how it would go on ebay  ::)
I will give it some thought.
Cheers
Andy
