I don't think anyone should jump to conclusions.

Thanks Wayne, I did send a picture of the label to the research department of one of the glass museums in Murano, who said they would be happy to take a look. I'll let you know if I hear anything back. Would be good to get a answer to this one.

Just spotted this one, same lidded pot but with gilt mounts. The picture doesn't show the label, although the description, mentions the label is worded: "VNC, Opaline de Venise, Hand Made in Italy" Could V. Nason, have used this label, whilst trading under the name 'VNC' and then used the other label later, whilst trading under the name 'Veritable Opaline'...?

Here's the same lidded pot as in the last link, with gilt mounts, this time with the 'Veritable Opaline' label. Surely, this label, therefore has to relate to V. Nason..?

Greg, I can't see any of the labels closely enough on any of the links unfortunately, and your fingers crossed link to the avventurine piece didn't work for me.  Was the label on the Avventurine piece exactly the same as some found on the opaline pieces?

Hi M,  :hi: the fingers crossed link was one of Wayne's posts.

The picture in the first link of mine, does enlarge, however the label is too faint to read the wording, although the description details the wording on the label "VNC, Opaline de Venise, Hand Made in Italy" which is a known V Nason label.

The picture in the second link does also enlarge, when clicking into it, the label here is the one in question the 'Veritable Opaline de Murano' one. Given that both pieces are the same, I would hope its safe to say the 'Veritable Opaline' label is also by V. Nason...?

Those blue pots are only similar, not the same

This link might work better for the Avventurina item:

The thumbnail is really small though.
