Interesting siganture.  A common location for signatures of most countries.  That type of irridescence is quite common and not particularly distinctive to my knowledge but the date appears to be '69' which makes it very early in the modern era of weights.  Can you make any sense of the other letters at the other side of the base?

Hi there:
Can we get a closer pic of the signature?  Or at least crop the pic so the signature is larger? 

I have no idea at the present.  Looks to have sort of a *hammered* look to the glass.  Been looking around here and found some other ???? terms that could be used ??? to describe a hammered texture.  They are *BATTUTO* and *MARTELE*, I think to describe this type of finish.

Mind you, I know nothing - and still learning about Glass too. 

So just an educated suggestion...... :-\  Just trying to help.... :thud:
