Picture is way too small.  Try giving the Ebay address maybe there is a better picture there.

Ken, please see the "Mod" comment in your initial post. As Ross has requested, a link to the eBay item will suffice.

I think this is the paperweight you referred to Ken.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/faceted-paperweight-baccarat-clichy-perthshire-st-louis-milifiori-/160836324518?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2572978ca6

I can't identify it but Kevin will if it is Scottish and probably will even if it is not.

The millefiori canes appear to be Goebel Of Italy canes from circa 1981.  The big facets look flat. So I'll go with Italian.

Agreed - looks like a Murano piece.
