You got it right. That's a Chinese weight.

Most of what is called Murano on eBay is Chinese. When I put 'paperweight' in a search in Italian Glass, I get maybe one genuine Murano in ten pages of Chinese. I also see lots of Chinese stuff with Murano stickers. It's almost not worth the effort to look.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
