It's Karel who is fishing for tips on how to ID Fratelli Toso paperweights.

BUT it would be nice if you acknowledged the source of your information in your ebay listings

There's basically two cane styles in that weight and they are both typical of Fratelli Toso. I've seen similar canes to the lacy canes with the color dots in the center in  other makers but FT's just look crisper and 'lacier' to me.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
