Hi,

No one is going to be able to tell you for sure from this photograph. While it appears to be an older piece of Murano glass, there are reproductions of these kinds of items coming out of Italy. You will need to bring it to an experienced dealer or collector so that they can examine the pontil  mark, quality of glass, and weight in person.  

Best of luck,

Laura
