I agree - Murano.  But the middle picture suggests an Australian influence.   :lol:  Alan.

Thank you very much..Does it have a name?  This one has a diameter of approximately 10 inches.  It has a nice heavy weight to it.  Does anyone have an idea of when it was made?

A nice Murano (Venice, Italy) with different millefiori coloring than usually found. Probably made in the 1970s.

I have a weight by La Fenice that has large neat canes, high dome and frit ground like that. I find it particularly nice because there is very little cane distortion unlike some other examples of Murano weights. I can't be positive but yours could be by the same maker.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
