They look like the real things, Adam. To tell the truth, I can never tell the difference between the ones done by AVeM, Fratelli Toso, or Ferro after the labels are off. They all look so similar to me. They're all equivalent in price, though, so no harm done if they are misidentified. If you are interested, you can look around online to see if you can find ones that are like yours with labels. There are some differences in the general ways the canes look, or at least it seems that way to me.

These bowls are pretty common, so I'm surprised when I see prices over $70 or so for them. Some are bigger and nicer than others, though. People will pay a bit more for the nicer ones.

The green one is good for AVeM but the red one isn't unfortunately. I have one exactly the same as your green one and I love looking at it from the green layer. It sort of reminds me of the ocean and the things you would see at the bottom of it. LOL.

I have one with a black background and it has a "Venetian Made in Italy" label on it.  The label is red.  I have yet to identify who made glass with a red "Venetian Made in Italy" label on their glass so I just call it a generic label.
