I also thought the shape of the vase looked very Seguso when I first saw the vase. The label reminded me of the Archimede Seguso label from the 1950s. I don't know if they ever acid etched their work "Made in Italy," but it could have been added later. I love a good puzzle.

In the 1930s, it was the law that all items imported into the US had to be permanently marked with the country of origin (wish they still did it today!).  So, your vase is most probably circa 1930s Murano glass. They all are stamped with a variation of "made in italy" from that period.

This stamp is not Venini.  The martinuzzi stamp I'm familiar with has the made in italy inside a diamond shape.  I concur that it is probably Seguso Vetri D'Arte, and a nice one at that!

Please let me know if the vase is for sale. I'd love to have it.
