Hi Ken, that's a fantastic vase you have!  My guess would be Barovier + Toso, the use of the gold leaf and white stripes remind me of their Zebrati range, a couple of which are shown here: [link]

Hmm to be honest I'd say no, but I'll let someone more knowledgeable on Murano glass than me answer that one as I could be wrong.

I would need to see a larger image of it, but the bottom looks more like an impact to me. There also appears to be a broken point on the top left front corner in the first image. Could be they are both related.....

That's what I was thinking too to be honest, but a clearer pic of the base is definitely needed to be sure.

Looks like the bottom has been flat polished and gone thru the pink  showing the under colour , thats not unusual with Murano glass , nice piece .   i am due at Specsaver tho ...!
