Millefiori ID?
« on: September 08, 2010, 01:05:33 PM »
I've been doing a lot of research on weights recently; Grandmother just passed and I was given this weight.  I'm still a bit too green to identify this one others have been easier with labels / ID's.

It's one of the larger weights in the collection - approx 4.25" dia.

Any help / info would be greatly appreciated  :hi:

Hi.  It is a mid 20th Century Murano paperweight.
