Could it be Salviati & co?  I see in my Italian Glass that Luciano Gaspari designed heavy sommerso for them, then went onto Flygsfors. Anyone else think the label reads Salviati?
Keeping fingers crossed here :D

Try brushing some white powder, talc or flour over the label. It might highlight the indentation/raised areas on the label to make it more easy to read. You could easily wipe (dry cloth) or blow the rest off after. It might help.  ;D

The & looks like the one used by Salviati & C. I think you're right, Sandymae. I can also see the Salviati. It looks like the label on the bottom of this c. 1960 dog.

We have to give sandymae credit for this one. I just agreed with her.

Isn't it strange that sometimes we see things in pictures that we can't with our eyes? It happens with me a lot.

We'll call it a team effort.

Kane - drooled
Sandmae - deciphered the label
TXsilver - confirmed with a full label

A job well down! ;D
