Many thanks is it worth anything as I know nothing about the maker it seems hard to find out about them? It is extremely fine.

Many of the Cenedese family are still working in Murano.  I don't know of a Giovanni, but there is a Gino. Move it to the Murano board, as people (Alex?) there may know.

Aha!  Great Glass doesn't mention Simone Cenedese and Paolo Cenedese, now both working in Murano!  :D  But yes, I guess you're right.  I would say it's definitely Giovanni - another of the great Cenedese family  ;D 

Definitely needs moving to Murano board, though  ;)

A moderator will move it at some point.

I find the crudity of the signature out of character on this piece. It could be a later addition/deception.

I am not sure, but why do that it is a really nice piece of glass I cannot belive someone could do that without exceptional talent the glass is paper thin.

To get more on eBay where people tend to go wild if a piece is signed. One seller that did this to lots of glass, some of it worth more with its original value destroyed by the signature. He was exposed by this glass-board, but made a small fortune doing it. Despite his spelling mistakes etc.
