Mezza filigrana always causes some speculation. In the absence of a signature we can almost certainly discount Venini who signed almost all their pieces.There is no evidence is a signature despite the wear on the underside of the foot. Scarpa, Cappellin and associates thus also become very unlikely as a consequence. They may also be discounted on the basis of style, their mezza filigrana pieces only deployed fine canes and were not alternated with broader tapes.
This is most probably Dino Martens design for Aureliano Toso. The alternating bands of fine threads and broad tapes and quirky organic form is typical of his work as is the applied clear glass foot.
