JP asked the same question as I had. When we (the GMB) were discussing this label (the round one) another time, I wondered if it was the precursor of the Promovetro label, with the letters standing in for the current numbers. However, there doesn't seem to a very broad range of letter combinations. This isn't a label that either Pina or Heiremanns (in Themes and Variations) show as being Seguso. On the other hand, we know that Seguso made bottles for Drioli.

It will be interesting to hear what you think when you've handled the piece.

Could the AF stand for Anzolo Fuga?  jp

I'd have thought no for a few reasons. First, the label usually belongs to the company, for Fuga mainly AVeM. All the labels on Fuga pieces I've seen, mainly photographs have been AVeM.  Secondly, the pieces I've seen with an AF have been more tourist glass than anything Anzola Fuga did. Third, this strikes me as 1980's label, or, at the earliest, a 1970's label, well after Fuga stopped designing (no more of his designs were produced after he stopped designing for AVeM).

It's an interesting theory, but...

I've just been doing a bit of digging. Drioli closed in the 70's so the label must be from then. There were other threads about Drioli including this one http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,18534.0.html  I've seen the same duck as the one one in this thread with the Kane's label--stylized rooster with initials AS--. I remember it because the first piece of glass I ever sold was exactly like the other animal. I thought it quite ugly and it was snapped up in an instant at an antique market. Taste is individual. I've not found any suggestions for a maker for the Drioli glass pieces. 

BTW, to get back to the origin of this thread. I think the Barbini piece is lovely. I'm not surprised that you were unable to resist the temptation to show it. I would have succumbed more easily.

I found this site which has a bit about Drioli as well.

http://www.practicallyedible.com/edible.nsf/pages/zara!opendocument&startkey=Zara

Not much information in there but apparrently Drioli started out a very long time ago! Confirms it was closed sometimes in the 70's.

Still waiting for it to arrive. Hopefully soon!  :thup:
