I like the colors of this one.  It isn't as well made as the pink - the canes are a little wonky.  It is 3.25 inches wide and 3 inches tall. Flat polished bottom.  There is 1 sand inclusion.

Yes, it's a Murano weight. Maker not identified.

Connie, your "side" image shows only cane close ups. I'd like to see a pic of the side view - straight on. I suspect that the canes are set almost halfway up the weight and the lower edges of the canes are probably rather uneven. But a pic will show whether I'm right.

Hi KevH -

Thank you so much for your replys.

Yes, the canes are set uneven.  I have a full side shot but must not have uploaded it.  I am traveling again, so will post picture when I get home.

Yep. Just like I thought. Definite Murano. I can't say which particular maker or even when, but I suspect 60s / 70s may be about right - or maybe not!

It's not Murano but is a Modern Chi weight.

Sorry, I can't agree with a Chinese attribution for this one. Unless ... are there other confirmed Chinese examples that we can see pics and details of?
