Default Signed Murano Box

I received this box about 18 years ago as a gift - It appears to be Murano, I was told that it is, also has a signature on the bottom: "MRaudruzzats (?) for Design Guild". Design Guild was a company based in New York, selling high end decorative accessories and lighting to the trade. They were bought out by "Crystal Clear". No one there knows about the box. Here are a few images - I hope someone out there can provide some clues.
Thanks so much for looking.

Hi jyounits,

Your box looks to be Mandruzzato. I think there was a previous thread about a week ago. The person had a vase and contacted the company and received a response from Mandruzzato himself, if I am recalling it right.

Here is the link to the previous thread. I do believe that yours is old (meaning made before the 1970's) according to the post. Based on the amber outer glass.

Yes, Mandruzzato has been a popular subject this week.

I am familiar with Crystal Clear, but did not know they had a predecessor Design Guild.

I also added a Mandruzzato tag at the bottom of the page, linking all similar pages.

Jyounits, Can I use the photo with the signature in the Murano Label Library?

Thanks.

Thanks. I also had another Mandruzzato label from a previous thread I added also.

Thanks so much for your input and quick response. Any idea what the replacement value of the box would be?
I enjoyed the Mandruzzato site. The Murano Label Library is quite impressive as well.
Thanks - havea great day!
