Thanks Wayne, both links were thoughts/suggestions from David regarding V Nason and Veritable Opaline de Murano. I came across these earlier, although as TC mentioned earlier, I don't think David was 100% certain that the Veritable Opaline de Murano label was definitively a V. Nason one. However, it does look very likely, would just be nice to get some definitive evidence to prove conclusively. I'll keep digging around.

Thanks again.

Greg

Me too, it's an interesting mystery, especially how similar in style the glass and the labels are to Empoli glassware.

Here's another pot very similar to the two you linked Greg, this one is labelled V Nason:

I have two photo's (they don't belong to me so can't post) of identical shaped vases, one bears the Veritable Opaline de Murano' label and the other 'VNC Opaline de Venice' label. The only differences are the colours, one is blue and the other is white, and one has gold decoration around the rim.

So that's at least one match. That doesn't rule out that the 'Veritable Opaline de Murano' could belong to an importer though.  :24:

I'm exceedingly happy to have finally managed to get a definitive answer on this label!

I must thank Davide Salvadore, who very kindly looked into the background of this label for me. For anyone whose not aware, amongst Davide Salvadore's vast experience within the glass industry, he spent some time working for Vincenzo Nason. Whilst, not being able to immediately confirm the origins of the label, Davide, kindly, contacted an old friend of his who previously worked in the sales department of V.N.for many years.

To quote Davide Salvadore's kind response to my email:
"I was informed by an old friend who worked in the sales department of V.N.for many years(Barbini Gianpaolo) . To confirm that the label was used by V.N. from the early 60's until the late 80, and that N was for Nason .He says that V.N.was founded as a family company Nason , but over the years 80 Vincenzo became the owner,and that was adding the V."
Hoping to be of help.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread and especially Davide Salvadore, who helped confirm the origins of this label!
