Yep, it's Murano. Now get that beautiful egg out of that awful piece of pressed glass. (Chippendale pattern?)

Napkin rings are ideal for displaying them on (my sister used to collect marble eggs, and used them as stands). You can pick up single solid silver napkin rings on eBay quite cheaply because they're fairly useless for their original purpose when solo.
