My new millefiori paperweight - I need help!
« on: September 20, 2011, 11:55:37 AM »
I have been slowly learning over the past few months about paperweights, but after a few days of searching I am stuck on this millefiori paperweight.
It has white with yellow centre rose canes with lots of little "chip" canes and star canes.
It looks modern as there is no wear to the flat base.
Any help would be greatfully received.

Thanks azwad

         Although it is Murano it seems ,in this instance it is a very good one compared to many, certainly worth keeping in a display case. Well done, a good learning curve. Regards Roger.
