Colourful Murano Millifiore Vase

Can anyone help me identify this vase I bought at an auction? It was listed as Murano glass and is in shades of yellow,orange and brown swirls with millifiore insets in multicolours. It is almost 7 ins. high and 6 ins. wide and is a heavy 2+kg.

  Thanks  Jules

The bright colors indicate that it is most likely a contemporary piece. Similar vases are sold on eBay. Sometimes they are called Murano. Other times they are not. I am not sure exactly where the vases are made.
