Yes, definitely Chinese canes.

The "frilly-looking" ones are typical, with the rather "squared" 6-lobed white section around the 6-lobe white inner and red core. The "coggy" canes are sometimes not easy to confirm as Chinese if they do not appear with other typical canes.

But most of the Chinese canes have white with basic red / blue / green / yellow colouring, unlike Murano canes which usually have a much more varied range of colours and shades.
