   Gooday, what I would like to reiterate is that my Murano and the ebay weight are from the same stable. Peters nicely overlaid and cut weight is from close by, partly due to the drab yellow as already mentioned, the canes are not the same as in the other two (AVeM ?) weights but do have a similarity but not half as good.
    It is still a good Murano because of the finishing to it.

After some delay I located the original seller and forwarded an email asking about attribution.  The reply has been .. "Probably is of A.VE.M. factory from Murano 1940."  Mmmm?!?  There seems to be some confusion (within the broken English) about who (i.e. me) has bought the one in the photogrpah I'd sent - one of those in this thread's first post - although I needn't worry because something similar will be arriving soon. Mmmmmmmmm!!?!!

While I'm not familiar enough with Venetian canes to refute the 'A.VE.M./1940s' attribution, the translucence, 'fraility' and colours of the canes still leave me unconvinced about a Murano provenance.  Consequently I will hold this one within my 'modern Chinese' cluster until I can find a definitive cane-match one way or the other.

Thanks to all for the learned contributions.
