Nice piece - but not from Murano. The label says "made in accordance with the techniques of the Murano maestros" - so at least it is made in Italy.  Other glass making centres in Italy which jump to mind are Empoli, Sardinia, Sicily, Napoli and Altare. You'll have a hard time to get a firm attribution for this - rather nice! - piece, I think...
