Why do you believe this is Archimede Seguso? I can't read the label, but the signature is not something I've seen for them. Their labels are usually red. Does the label say Archimede Seguso? The vase is not something I would expect from them.

Better photo's, does the label and signature now make the piece confusing??

I guess she could have designed it and Seguso made it...  On the other hand, stickers can be peeled off and stuck on anything.

Elsa Peretti does design glass - I just Googled it.  I'd suggest doing some research on the Net now and possibly emailing Tiffany.  :)
