Shops use their own labels on stuff so you remember where you got it from and your friends say that's nice where did you buy that from. It's cheap marketing - lots of retailers apply their own labels and always have done. A shop is unlikely to have been a decorator because it requires specialist equipment to fire gilding or silvering on

The Morreti elephant wouldn't have had any decoration Anne  ;)

I agree it's probably a Muranese retailer and think that your vase is much more likely to be from mainland Italy rather than Murano. This mould-blown stuff is more typical of the mainland.

Oops! Missed the elephant Christine, I was focused on the vases!  :-[  You're right, it's more likely to be a retailer label then.  :thup:
