Thanks for your input, Alex and Nic -- very much appreciated!

So Seguso VdA is quite possible as a maker of our vases -- nice :)

I still need to take a proper studio shot of the vase, but here's a snapshot:

I've seen the color combination used fairly often for Seguso VdA and Archimede Seguso. I could be remembering wrong, but Archimede may have executed some of the Seguso VdA pieces. The clean line and colors make me think it is one of the two companies. The rim makes me favor VdA. It looks like a nicely executed vase.

I believe he did execute some pieces for SVdA in the 50's in the sommerso style. Hard to tell though as that pic does not give enough detail. From the looks of it I would say yes. Simple but classic styling as only A.S could do.

These photos will hopefully be a little more instructive. Cut, polished and chamfered rim and base.

I'd exchange it for one of these in the same lovely colour-scheme:
