A Dal Borgo

Has anyone heard of them? Is it a retailer or a manufacturer?

These vases are not uncommon, but until now I've never seen an ID or a labelled one.

I think that an address in the centre of Venice excludes manufacturing - so perhaps this is a retailer selling http://www.borgonovo.it/ glass. Also, if Hyacinth vase it should conform to the basic law: can you fit three fingers in the opening, is there enough room for the bulb and for rooting. If it is, I know of someone whom will be positively delighted with this attribution.
