I'd personally rule out Caithness, I don't think they've ever done this sort of very simple controlled bubble weight.
I wouldn't have a clue about wfs and I'm not hot on pws anyway.  :wsh:

Interesting there are paperweights by Per Lutken for Holmegaard with a similar shape - but not colour.  The bright colour, and no markings, makes me suspect Murano.

Pilgrim Glass in the US used to make paperweights in this style also.
