Hi Martyn, thanks for the photo - it looks remarkably similar to the one in my link to liveauctionneers above - do you think they may be selling your old one?

Very similar aren't they and about the same size I think, but ours went to Japan so I think it's unlikely.

I'm seeing my friend next week and would love to be able to give them some info on this piece.  Although I still think it's probably Venini, it is just an opinion based on internet research.  I would like the opinion of someone that has actually seen/owned such a piece.
