Hi Alexander

Sorry but cant help with the maker - its  2" (50mm) diameter typical Murano - flat polished base - top facet and 4 side facets all flat. Picture is of the centre rose it is surrounded by a garland of 6 further identical roses.

Best regards

Derek

Mine is from this Fornace  http://www.mazzega.it/ Perhaps I could visit them on my trip to Murano in March?  (See Cafe thread)  :D  ;)

You might consider the possibility that this is from Pairpoint on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.  Not sure, just a possibility.

Hi, I hadn't considered Parpoint initially, I have a Parpoint with the common Parpoint rose,
it's farily different from the rose in the this weight.

I do get a "old" vibe from this weight.
So for now I'll go with "inspired by clichy and baccarat".

I doubt I will be able to id this weight until I can match the little complex canes.

Thanks for all your input tho :)
