So crudely faked  you cannot even decypher the middle line which is supposed to read "murano".

I suspect that the signature has poorly photographed, but i was clearly able to read the word murano. Look at the base, loads of wear, i reckon at the very least it has age. I would say it's real but why not ask for the providence if your unsure. Ian

it is the shape of the stencil which is unconvincing. Lettering may be smeared sometimes - as happens with a rubber stamp -  but the font on this one just deviates too much. Never mind the wear.
Maybe we're just highly suspicious because these mosaic vases are a faker's favourite and start to bark at the slightest hint of  irregularity. And as bidding runs high, maybe the bidders have different (read: more accurate or up to date)  information.... but I vote WRONG.

I've watched this discussion with interest and the signature does appear somewhat crude, however, the overall look of the vase appears right from what are really not very good photographs. I've checked out a whole heap of these pezzato's and they do vary quite a lot. I'd really like to hear Lauras take on this one but my gut feeling is that it's a good one.
