Another score for sticker change Sunday at GW. Waited all week because I knew this would be half price today with it's blue price tag. Amazing it was not chipped or broken. It is so delicate. It does have some hard water mineral deposit haze around the neck which is tricky to remove. I found one online just like it on an antique auction site. So the ID is spot on. I checked the 20th Century glass website and it appears to be Venini -Murano but it's not signed or labeled. The bubble inclusions are typical of their work though. The handles are pencil thin but surprisingly strong. It's a beautiful pale blue green they call "seafoam". As I was leaving the store with this in hand a guy stopped and asked me what the sticker colors were. He saw the vase and said that it was a beautiful piece and that he had seen it as well. I think I beat him to the punch.... I felt bad, but just for a second.
