I have always imagined that if Barovier held the patent for a specific colour then they would not only have used it but possibly have flaunted it a little too!

I have no idea when the patent would have expired or whether they would have let other glassmakers use it or supplied it to them and collected a fee from them as a form of revenue.  There does seem to be an awful lot of the red and gold colour around but was that simply because it was very fashionable during, I think, 1930s/1940s or because it is not particularly fashionable now and people are selling?

I have almost the same deep ruby red vase with the gold included leaves on the base and the rigarre(?) along the top. It is swirl glass and it the most gorgeous deeeep ruby red and lightweight for it's size. I have been trying to find other venetian or murano glass with the leafs at the base. I am unable to post a photo, but mine is VERY  much like the vase shown here, just shaped a little different. I thought it was Salviati. I so much wish that I knew who was the correct maker. I search many websites, and cannot find another like it with the leaves on the base in this deep ruby red, or any other color & it's really frustrating me. If anyone has any more photos of venetian glass with the leaves @ base, I would LOOOOVE to see them! Hope I will be able to solve the mystery!!

two items... the salt cellars are deep ruby, the bowl blue - both bought together.

Ivo, your salts look like the dark ruby I was thinking of but not seen nearly as much of that fabulous dark blue, I wonder why?

I have an old vase which I think is Murano and has a third type of face prunt, (not mastered photos yet)!

Was it Paolo Venini who said something like ...... I can sell any vase as long as it's blue!  Not sure the quote or the attribution is correct but I suspect the logic is. 

I also wonder whether the leaves vase Ginogrammy commented on could be Vetreria Artistici Barovier. 

Very little fact and a lot of hypothesising in my remarks which I hope are not adding to the confusion.

What maker would be best guess for Keiths Red vase with the crimped rim and leaf feet? Salviati & Co.? or Artisti barovier? Late 1800's?

These red things with swirls and gold in the clear bits worry me. They're not desperately well made and seem to pop up everywhere in one form or another.  My guess would be that some of them are genuine older Murano and some are cheap and cheerful modern, whether Murano or elsewhere.

Think you are probably absolutely correct Christine!

I know that my piece is old, and please let me know if you would where in the world they're popping up everywhere, as I cannot find any like mine anywhere and the closest that I've seen, is the vase @ the beggining of this post.
