The label 'Geniune Venetian Glass' is a generic label. I have it on about a dozen pieces. Interestingly the other label looks like a stock label. As to maker, it could have been anyone. Is a lovely bowl though, one of the nicer looking ones I have seen (i don't own any of these though).

You are right with the pattern name.  The most likely maker for this would be AVEM around 1950 to 1960 but it could also be another firm utilising the same techniques.
