Closest match seems to be Romano Donà. He has a biography page on the muranonet website.

Definitely Donà. I've never been so keen on these aquariums, but his work is always to the very highest quality - I've a few of his more sculptural pieces for the Gino Cenedese and Stefano Toso glassworks.

What does the acid-etched mark say? Looks like it reads 'MURANITH Murano Venezia'... but I've never heard of a Muranith so presumably it's a retailer rather than the manufacturer.

Glassworks was probably Stefano Toso - Donà did a few different aquarium sculptures for them.
