Bohemian?

In my role as perpetual underbidder....I failed to win this interesting paperweight. A casual glance could lead one to say Murano - but I am sure that is wrong.  What does anyone reckon - an early Bohemian by Egermann?

Although JP's eBay images are not as sharp as I would like i  order to see the cane detail, the canes do appear to be the same as illustrated on pages 222/3 of Peter von Brackel's latest book. He places these in a section on a sub-set of weights that he suggests were probably made in the Egermann glassworks.

Yes, a fascinating and historically interesting, if rather untidy, weight.

Perhaps as we know the seller, we could ask him if we could have the pix here for info
