Definitely Murano, they were made by Fratelli Toso.
I have seen paperweights featuring these canes with FT paper labels.
They come in a variety of setups and all I have seen have had these canes exlusively in the setup, ie no other type FT/Murano canes.

If I recall correctly these have also been marketed by another company (Goebels I think).
