Jonas, I've now found the label on the photo of the base, I always forget to scroll through all the photos on Ebay listings. The Murano Zoo has several pieces with the flower-shaped label which they attribute specifically to Seguso, so I think the bird is by Seguso and that links the penguin to them to. Regards.

Hello,
Someone has done them and put a generic label on.
In the rooster labels you have small letters in, maybe in the future someone can connect these letters to a specific maker.
Kind regards
Jonas

Nev, as Jonas says it is not an Archimede Seguso label and the base is nothing like any A.S. I have seen. It is well made but I have nothing but it AIN'T to add.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

I've just found this online, it looks very similar. It has a label and the attribution is to Galliano Ferro which seems OK.

Hi Nev here are part of my perfume set by A.S. the labels confirm it. Don't this will solve your issue as this style was not unique to Seguso both A and VdA.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Hello Ardy, apparently the "rooster" label on the piece I linked was used as a generic by several companies and vary with the addition of different letters "AS" "AQ" etc. which seem to be a mystery. I am again unsure as to who made mine.
