"Genuine Venetian Glass" is a label that's often found on exported glass from Murano and/or what's loosely called tourist glass. No one has ever offered an account of what company produced it, that may be the name of the company itself, but it's generally glass that lies towards the lower end of the Murano scale of quality. This looks like a fairly nice piece for them. 

I hope this helps.
