Can I just point out that as that second picture is not yours you are not allowed to post it for copyright reasons. You can however post a link to it.

Be very wary of online attributions. Murano is very much used inaccurately in connection with glass. If the neck is rough inside, it should have a stopper. Can we see a picture of the base please, as these sorts of things don't usually have pontil marks.

I dont know how to post the photos of the "pontil" mark here as they are too big so here is the link to the auction:

Please can you let me know if this is a pontil mark as if not obviously I will have to amend the listing. Thankyou everyone for your help.

It's definitely not a pontil mark. I'm not sure whether that's a normal mould mark or what they call a gadget mark.
