Hi

Don't rule out modern Chinese: at least one of the factories over there is producing some very competent lampwork (as well as less competent stuff that ends up being sold in Murano).

Looking at the side, the set up is positioned really low in the piece and the bottom curve is almost completely lost.  I'd agree with the comment about the bottom having been re-ground and polished.

Maybe ...

But maybe not quite up to E W Hansen's standard.

You could ask Eric himself.   He's selling the weights on ebay himself - e.g. 330280124282
Weightforit   -  mad about marbries, crowns and swirls ...
