I think yes. I would guess Barbini or Seguso. However, the one in the auction does not look like Murano glass to me.

Thankyou Shannon and Pat, I saw the one on ebay too and wondered, also there's another one just finished that doesn't particularly look Murano to me either.  I would say probably Seguso for mine looking at examples from both makers.  Cheers!
