According to a post on the Glass Message board Toscany was an importer/distributor of glass in NY in the 60/70's if I recall correctly. Therefore I guess could have been distributing from many sources which would explain the label and the sig. I thought the sig looked ok from memory but had a quick search and couldn't find one to compare.

Thank you for your help. The signature does seem to be legit. I was hoping to id the vase pattern or place it in a series. I had Googled Carlo Moretti but had gotten mostly info on his own glass line.
