Could these 'splashy' vases be by Stelvia from Empoli, Italy?  I came across the following thread which shows a labelled Stelvia vase, which has very similar colours to the vase shown at the top of this thread:

ooh thanks Wayne!  Mine is more of an all-over pattern than the 'leopard' type spots shown on that one but they are incredibly similar aren't they?

I've done a bit more digging and found a few labelled examples on ebay, item numbers 300453930021, 280545467154 and 220640474447.  Also found a 'full view' of the leaopard style on another site here:

Still haven't seen any with the opalescent stems though, I'll keep my eyes peeled  ;)
