Frank ...it is small ...I could guesstimate it ...we've seen and debated labels like this a number of times here.

We can't decide if the ambiguity is innocent or deliberately misleading.

I have a  small cased glass vase with an orange and gold  paper label which reads as follows:

     "LAVORAZONE
                          MADE IN ITALY
      T. Murano"

Who or what T. Murano is, I haven't the foggiest.
