Hi Katherine.
Venini is the correct attribution for these eggs which were (or are? made in mezza-filigrana and in various colour combinations.  88 would be the year of design rather than manufacture I think - it should be possible to get this confirmed. They were at least in the program until 2000 from when my Venini documentation dates.
