Interesting that you brought up Poli and Pinzoni. I recently bought a piece with a label (a label I have been trying to find for a while) on a bowl. I have one by Poli and the other one is by Pinzoni. I need to dig out the Poli piece as I want to do a comparison against this other one with the label by Pinzoni. I will take some pics and list them here, might be an interesting discussion.

I still find the green colour in the SVCC piece quite bright compared to some of the green and amber pieces I have. Even the amber looks a bit duller, more diluted than what I am used to. Or maybe it could be the lighting  :huh:

I've a few older Seguso pieces I've not been able to pin down to a designer with any real certainty - one is the same smokey colour as your recent purchase, but is of a much more straightforward Pinzoni-esque form (I think). I'll upload images when I get chance.

And, yup, the colour on the SVCC footed bowls does look fairly insipid compared to the deep amber of the piece in the original post - which in itself looks a bit brighter than in real life. Hopefully I can dig up some older verifiable Seguso pieces with the same colouring / similar concept of design.

Tam Bam - no worries, I jump the gun all the time when replying to posts.  :)
