I was able to determine that this was Murano when I found identical ashtrays in a different color. Somewhere I have the pattern written down. Other than that It's been very hard to find another like it so I am hoping if someone sees it and recognizes it maybe they could pass on what they know. Any information would be appreciated.

    I think it is part of the "Aventurina" range of a'aventurine' glass by V. Nason & C. Srl.
    Vincenzo Nason established his glassworks, Vincenzo Nason & Cie (VNC) on the island of Murano, Venice, Italy in 1967, after having previously worked at Venini. The name was changed to V. Nason & C. in 1989. The company is believed to have closed sometime around 2001. V Nason & C are probably best known for their 'Avventurina' range, black glass filled with copper aventurine inclusions. They also produced many sculptures of animals and birds, as well as opaline glass which often bore labels reading 'Veritable Opaline de Murano' or 'Veritable Opaline de Venise', both labels included a red wax seal style 'N' for Nason.
