Gold dust shell - Venini?

I bought this small gold dust shell in Wales. There are no markings.  I have seen a very similar item, but much larger, in one of the glossy Venini books. Apparently it was by Paolo Venini, dated 1942. Are these related?

Ivo,

Stop asking so many difficult questions so early in the morning!

This one, at least, I can assure you is not the work of Venini. It is possibly Archimede Seguso.

Friday night here so I thought I'd give you something to chew over for the weekend  :D
Thank you for the Archimede angle.

Yep I'm with Laura Archimede Seguso, or just possibly Alfredo Barbini.
