Well, I was really thinking that my vase was Salviati, but I just found this bowl on oldluxe.com that REALLY looks most like my vase for $595.00 and they say Barovier & Toso studios, so either or I suppose. My vase is very deeep ruby red and quite large.

If you want help with your ID Ginogrammy you really need to post a picture, preferably two or three, including the base. See the link here for help http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,6522.0.html  If you can't manage, then use the email icon under my name on the left and I will post them for you.

I am unable to get picture to post. It has a tiny silver sticker that is not shown in the murano labels. It just says made in italy and is just about between the size of a pencil eraser and a dime, or a large pea. the words are'nt colored, the sticker is all silver and it is very deep ruby red.

Just Made in Italy usually means NOT made in Murano.

That is not correct. I have seen a Venini carlo scarpa unsigned vase that only had a MADE IN ITALY STICKER, and a vase that was att. to Fratelli toso, also, sticker Made in italy from Uniques & Antiques Inc. and another that had 2 seperate stickers, one that was very worn-Vetri Artistica and the other sticker Made in italy. I'm pretty certain that there's a silver foil label Made in italy decribed in Leslie Pina's Italian glass, pg. 15. I would'nt want people to think that MADE IN ITALY does'nt mean murano or is'nt authentic as that's just not the case, but thanks.

The leaf or petal base of ebay item# 150499435020 and the shape is the same as my vase, but me vase is deep swirl ruby red. You would need to look in ebay us under completed items.

Another example, quite similar to one of Keith's in style by the look of it. Not the best photos, gold in the prunt, foot and rim.

Imho,
we can't give a realistic identification of this piece. It is a so classic piece, produce with so classic and common techniques...
There so many master glassmakers producing "vintage style".
I think that it is made in Murano at 99,99% and I, if I would have one like this, I would have at least 3-4 names to give the commission to be produced now, but I have seen some pieces not identical, but with the same details also in my granfather home coming directly from the '30s.
So I think that you will never have a final answer.

Ciao

am also searching for information on a set of plain clear straight sided whisky tumblers with matching water jug - jug has bulbous round bowl and narrow straight neck in which the tumblers have 3 lion prunt feet and the jug four lion prunt feet. Were my grandmothers - she passed away in 1970 at about age of 79.

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

I've a small bowl with, if memory serves, identically-moulded lion prunts in what should be Fratelli Toso's 'Nerox' glass (I'm not sure if other glassworks were producing wares with the same surface treatment?).
