AV Mazzega primarily makes lighting, but also make vases. This signature was on the base of a vase.
These are three examples of Mazzega labels used. I do not know the dates. The IVR labels must be post-1950 -- the year the company adopted the name IVR Mazzega.

These are three examples of foil on paper labels used by Salviati. They were probably all used in the 1960s-early 70s. Many of their things during this time also have Salviati engraved on bottom. (The yellow Made In Italy sticker seen in the second photo can be found on glass by many companies. It is a generic sticker.)
Scalloped red "Made in Italy" seen on some Archimede Seguso pieces made in the late 1940 and 1950s.
The red, circular scalloped foil on paper label was used from the 1950s-70s. The letters are silver. Often they are seen with a scalloped white stock label, such as the picture on the bottom. Note that the work MURANO is in the middle of the label. The AVeM label is very similar, but has the word Italy in the middle. These labels were used on mass produced objects made for export.
This oval scalloped label was used on during the same years as the round one was. Heiremans writes it was used on "artistic glass" production.

The 1980s saw the advent of the smooth oval red label. The plastic oval label was probably introduced in the late 1970s. Artistic glass from the 1970s and later was often signed as shown.
