Hi jamey
I bet they were several glassmakers in Murano capable of making non conventional chevrons but I would never think that this bead could have some relation with Moretti.
There is a very good record of his trade mark production and he has a small Museum of his own where they are genereusly displayed.
It seems to me that his products are using refiner glass and more vivid colors like bright red and bright yellow that were introduced in the early 1920.
The colors and the cruder glass showing on this particular chevron are I believe from earlier time.
The Murano museum has no exact dating but they are recorded as given to them in the last quarter of the 1800s.
